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."
