What do you mean by "in time?"  There was no discount on transactions 
before July 15th.

I can think of a number of reasons why not to have the DS record in 
the root zone right now.

There's a long way to go until DNSSEC is deployed and really making 
an impact.  While the work to bring up the root zone is significant, 
it is still a enabling effort that eventually get enterprises to 
generate the attestations and get ISPs to depend on the validation of 
the attestations.

So I don't see a reason to rush.

Spouses, like Internet protocols, lack necessary troubleshooting tools. Sigh.
