Do check/worry about DDoS reflections from UDP requests for DNSKEYs.  A
number of addresses out there do seem to always request large packet
type responses, which is always questionable.  Making sure something
like RRL is on/implemented is a good thing to do as well.

The dnssec-tools servers continue to get many requests for ANY from a
number of addresses that have been sending me queries for years, even
though I've blocked them years ago from answering those questions as
they were clearly malicious in nature (and never caching content).
