	well...  i might refer folks to some historical posts from
	Paul Vixie...  granted, he's not claiming direct responsibility
	for DLV, but he is president of ISC...  so his musings might
	carry a little weight.

	for example:

[lengthy diatribe elided]

(my concern is, DLV is an evolutionary dead end, a deployment
aid, and pissing away even more time and money on it seems like a waste of
time compared to finishing NSEC3, signing the root, y'know, important stuff.)


	with those kinds of statements, I would be very hesitant to 
	commit to DLV for anything other than as a sandbox experiment.
