At the very least, you would inform your registrars first, then your
registrants. It may not be worth a press release, but maybe an announcement
on your web site *when* all the logistic and operational bits have been put
in place. 

There is much more work involved than just adding DS records to the root
zone. Early announcements of services which cannot be easily delivered
because of failures in the supply chain only leads to negative press
