[dns-operations] [Update] Incomplete NSEC3 denial of existence from domaincontrol.com servers

[ This is still unresolved since the original post on Nov 24th, now at least
  289 affected TLSA RRsets in 255 domains. Updated details at:
  https://imrryr.org/~viktor/dnsviz/domaincontrol.com.html ]

The NSEC3 denial of existence for the TLSA records of at least 202 MX hosts (in
178 domains) is bogus, because the QNAME (or sometimes the wildcard if the
qname is covered "by accident") is not covered by any NSEC3 RR.  In the below
example (RRSIGs elided), the sole NSEC3 RR only covers the zone apex:
