[dns-operations] DNSSEC deployment in Sweden

Just to give you the complete scenario, on .br, as it happens on many other ccTLDs, the registrars are not the only way to register domains. The DNSSEC domains in .br are not due to the registry signing the container zone, but due to DNS services optionally provided to users that register domains directly with the registry. Each domain has its own zone keys and their authority DNS servers are different from the ccTLD servers. From a operational stand-point there is no difference to the user or the community that the servers are maintained by the same organization that runs the registry. 

I understand that registrars usually don't like when they are not the only way to register domains, but that's likely to be out of scope for a dns-operations list.

>> Among registrars you are probably right. Among registries two other TLDs have strong DNSSEC counts: .DE and .BR (http://registro.br/stat/dnssec.html , ~190,000 DNSSEC-signed domains)
