Is this at all similar to the situation with DNSKEY lookups for
say uspto.gov (I don't know what DNS server software is used by
the nameservers for that domain):

I've not encountered any similar issues with folks who did upgrade
to reasonably recent versions of PowerDNS.  Admittedly my tests
are far from comprehensive.  I just look for "unbound" to not fail
to return the MX/A/AAAA/TLSA RRsets if they exists, or to return
NXDOMAIN or NODATA when they do not.  

I've not been testing any other DNS/DNSSEC edge-cases.  I don't
even make a fuss when the glue and authoritative NS or A/AAAA RRsets
don't match up.
