i am not for DLV, i know it's a hack, i just want dnssec to be deployed.

if such an operator steps forward, they will have ISC's full support, so long
as they are a nonprofit public benefit entity like ISC itself, or RIPE or
IANA. (note that i'm unclear as to how RIPE's credentials and qualifications
differ from ISC's in regards to operating a DLV registry, but no matter.)

i understand your position. roy arends of nominet has a proposed design for
DLV that would work the way you want. you should offer him beer in exchange
for writing it up. DLV as currently implemented in BIND9 does not make it
possible for every TLD to run their own DLV, and while the specification
allows this, it would be an extremely high-maintainance operation for all
validator operators. as for synchronizing the keyholder and domainholder,
ISC has a mechanism for this and i am confident enough that i trust our DLV.

DLV is only meant to help us for a short while.
