Right.  It isn't like we are lacking for ways to solve the problems we
know about.  E.g., we know how to mitigate the Kaminsky attack.  But,
yet, still there are plenty of vulnerable resolvers (per our PAM paper
From this past spring).  E.g., we know how to secure DNS records with
crypto.  But, yet, broadly speaking we don't do it.  So, perhaps we need
to re-think things.
