When I said once a week, I didn't mean just DLV. ;)  And I'm sure in 
May there'll be no breakage.  Although bad things "happen in threes."

Everyone feels embarrassed if they care about the service and mishaps 
happen.  The concern I have isn't the dedication, etc., but these 
point to the general immaturity of the deployment.  Yeah, DNSSEC 
since 199x, but the pressure to go forward is rising and that is 
what's causing the bruising.

This is all new, TARs are another "degree of freedom."  That's why 
I'm asking for someway for a SEP producer to have a say in where the 
DNSSEC material gets put and re-transmitted.

I figured your next post would be in haiku.
