That's really tragic. But I guess the minimal feedback to your individual
submission has something to do with the way DNScurve is positioned by Daniel
and you from the start :) Even in your most recent OpenDNS article about
DNScurve, it's all (at least 50%) ranting about how bad DNSSEC is. This
shouldn't be your main motivator, come on.

DNSSEC was developed by the same people from DNSEXT. They know it took long.
And yes they know it cost a lot of money. But creating two camps like you're
doing now isn't extremely helpful. Some DNSEXT people on the IETF list have
even mentioned that DNScurve is a good proposal, but not to replace DNSSEC.

To conclude, any idea when DJB will start testing DNSSEC patches to his DNS
