Any of the members of the list would be so kind to share statistics with
the percentage of DNSSEC-related queries your nameservers are receiving?

I have reasonable numbers for a non-DNSSEC from the root and .nz, but
I'm interested in the characteristics of DNSSEC traffic to make some
realistic benchmarking.

For example, the usual proportion of traffic we see is around 52%
A-queries, 33% MX-queries, 10% AAAA-queries, 1%NS queries and the
remaining 4% various types. So if you can provide similar numbers but
including DNSSEC query types (DNSKEY, DS, RRSIG, perhaps NSEC/NSEC3) I
would greatly appreciate it.
