The big similarity is that the need for DNSSEC was not there until 
last summer although DNSSEC was largely defined.  I see the same for 
IRIS, a completely specified protocol, untested in operations, and a 
simmering need for it that is not recognized to be worth the 
deployment costs.

As with IPv6, the problem with the deployment of frictionless surfaces is
that they're not getting traction.
