I would have expected OpenDNSSEC to wait for PropagationDelay to mark it active according to the timeline you refer to (PropagationDelay == "Dreg" ?). Anyway, we are a bit switching to OpenDNSSEC internals.

I'm not sure about ODS internals, but IIRC ODS uses double-signature. 
So, maybe the propagation delay of the parent zone (and the TTL of the 
DS) is considered before retiring the old KSK.
