Diving way too deeply into a solution at this point (forgetting for a 
moment that isn't the protocol defining mail list, this one 
operations list)...no, it isn't necessary.

One could potentially have a DNSKEY set including the key that 
corresponds to the DS at the parent and then another key of the same 
algorithm designating that the algorithm is not used for signing the 

That would be one way to avoid the control plane and keep this data driven.
