a friend has whacked me that i am being too terse and subtle again.

this is the issue i brought up in the san jose long ago meeting when
joao first announced dlv.  what is the trust model?  this has never been
answered in a satisfatory fashion.

though i understand that isc means well with dlv, and is trying to paste
over a politcal farce with a technical patch, the dlv trust model is
essentially broken.  it moves signed root trust from the iana to isc,
and, aside from the fact that this very change is serious breakage,
isc's trust process and policies are unclear.
