It does seem from a quick review of draft-dempsky-dnscurve-00 that the link-layer security provided by DNSCurve depends on a previous, unsecured DNS lookup by the DNSCurve client to obtain the public key of the DNSCurve server.

Perhaps any further discussion of the protocol would find a better home on the namedroppers list.
