DNSViz used to complain when an RRSIG didn't align to a DNSKEY, but that was changed because sometimes there were legitimate reasons for that (like pre-publishing RRSIGs as part of an algorithm rollover).  So all we were left with was an error about the RRSIG itself (i.e., name didn't match).

Yes, guessing is hard :). And actually the command-line version does a little better in this particular case than the Web/database version because there are some challenges with keeping track of a DNSKEY/DS for a non-zone (see below) in the way that the software is currently implemented.

Oh, I see now.  The actual delegation is missing completely, as far as I can tell.
