That’s what we’ve been demanding since (yes, I checked my email before re-harrassing them) 2012.  Now that there was an actual serious attack that hinged on it, they seem to be taking it seriously.

It sounds like there are three parallel efforts underway: one to update the iOS security handbook, a second to get DNSSEC client validation integrated, and a third to try to move DANE forward.

Anything any of you can do to continue to encourage them would be great.
