dnssec is widely seen as a way to make your dns service more fragile,
without adding support for any new apps, and without defending against
any threat model that's in any way common.

i would be shocked if github hadn't considered the cost/benefit of
making their design dnssec-capable, and i'd also be shocked had they
decided that dnssec was a must-have.

note, i personally use dnssec everywhere, and i'm hoping hard for DANE.
so, shooting the messenger would be particularly unjust in this case.
