[dns-operations] estimate DNSSEC signing power

we discuss to DNSSEC sign internal zones. General opponents bring up concerns about signing zones with update rates "up to 100 updates per second"

I like to ask for experience / opinions: Which resources would be required to sign such traffic?

Personally, I understand "up to 100/s" as "once a week we start 100 serves at the same time, sending some DNS updates and this will stress a signer"
But it may also be understand as "100 updates/second 7x24"

I'm aware of .org which I experience as "life signing every new zone". How many new zones/time happen there?

Thanks for your ideas!
