marie already linked my previously expressed views into this thread, so 
let me add something new:

if the ultimate benefit of dnssec is JUST and ONLY to allow caching 
recursives to detect and reject end to end tampering, then that good is 
not as large as the risk and cost of deploying dnssec.

however, the end game here is dnssec-aware applications, like DANE. and 
that outcome is well worth all known and imaginable risks and costs of 
deploying dnssec.

so, the headline above could be true, "from a certain point of view."
