It's not entirely "business" that causes the issues .. 

Registry operators do not have a consistent or uniform way of implementing DNSSEC, which makes integration more complex for registrars.

If, as a registrar, we only offered .com then it would be one thing, but that's not the case .. 

> Before someone says "switch registrar", it's usually not that easy and then becomes something resembling a full time project vs "just throwing a switch".
> Edit a zone file vs "edit, run a script, upload some keys, roll some keys, do some other magic" is harder than edit a zone file.
> This runs into the same friction issue that using PGP and other tools encounter.  It seems simple enough to most folks, but when you add in someone less-technical, it goes off the rails quickly.  I can't count the number of times someone emailed me their full keyring or private key when they meant public.  It's not as easy as you think it is.
