I hope that I understand Mats point. Allow me to rephrase it:

If you do a delegation wrong you create some lameness, and the DNS can  
cope with that. If you do the DS wrong then you immediately impact the  
secure zones.

With plain old DNS you need to shoot at least twice to shoot yourself  
in the feet. With DNSSEC you only need one shot to do serious damage.
