I'm not familiar with SIG(0), but it looks like this would require the
resolver to perform a public key signature operation in response to
each stub resolver request, right?  Also, since this is being done to
secure the last hop instead of DNSSEC, do I understand correctly that
it won't guarantee "end-to-end" security?
