Not mentioned yet is that all four appeared already signed and with
DS records in the root zone.

But... the two Cyrillic gTLDs (xn--80asehdb & xn--80aswg) are a bit
broken, in that NXDOMAIN responses don't validate properly. Neither
dnssec-debugger.verisignlabs.com nor dnsviz.net are able to analyse
validations problems for NXDOMAIN responses, so I am not quite sure
why yet, but e.g.

  dig +dnssec www.xn--80asehdb.
  dig +dnssec www.xn--80aswg.

give SERVFAILs which can be avoided by adding the +cd option.
