As I am trying to gather registrars, registries and hosters willing to fund
and support PowerDNSSEC development, I've discovered that *Interest* in
DNSSEC is very strong, but that it often does not translate into an actual
transaction or commitment.

Maybe this situation can be compared to selling a high-end sports car.
Millions of people are interested, and hang on to your lips, but in the end
most people are just that: interested.

There is a huge gap between being interested in something and buying into
something. The former is easily confused for an indication of the latter.
