My experience from operation of both in the .SE domain since DNSSEC started here many years ago is that the only way of be able to move forward in discussions like these (this is not the first time we have this discussion) is by clearly separating the case of changing registrar from the case of changing DNS provider. This because the result of the discussion (a set of "best practices" that nice players should follow) must clearly say what the donating and gaining registrar and dns providers should do. And, if they play nice, the changes of registrar and dns provider can not happen at the same time.

So I do not, as you understand, think discussions like these will lead to much more than maybe a list of "this will happen no matter what" if one have one organisation that a) is dns provider, b) is registrar, c) is not cooperating.

Maybe that is a list of things you want, but I think a list of things to think of where donating organisation _is_ cooperating is much more interesting.
