Actually, it has been working remarkably well for me, for many years,
with .museum the first observed problem.  Why do you feel so strongly
that hardening against algorithm downgrade attacks is bad?

In any case, my system is a bit of a "canary", doing DNSSEC/DANE
deployment surveys, so having it fail is perhaps a feature. Is
there broad consensus that we should just accept algorithm
downgrades?  If so, I could indeed stop looking for sites that
run into trouble that way.
