As stated before, the problem is that after the "early adopter" period 
is over we'll be stuck with NTAs forever. This is one of those 
fundamental disagreements between those who believe that DNS should 
always be forgiving of operator error, and those of us who do not.

I continue to maintain that NTAs violate the whole principle of DNSSEC, 
and that if there is a high price for doing it wrong less people will do 
it wrong.
