Not having read the BBC article, I think something along 

"Yes, we know.  Emin's work points out some of the far-gone consequences 
 of not paying attention. We are, however pretty convinced that: 

 1. The mentioned examples are extremes. Most of the namespace is 
    in considerably better order. 
 2. DNS has historically been a neglected part of the quality 
    control most web site operators perform. It simply is so redundant 
    and ubiquitous that it not is seen as a critical part. 
 3. The ultimate fix for this is DNSSEC." 

...or so.
