I think the purpose is quiet clear. They [or a subset of they that
wrote the form] don't want to deploy DNSSEC related and want to
discourage customers from adopting it. The way those questions are
worded, I'm sure that's the only answer.
Now, as a business they have the absolute right to discourage
technologies. Every vendor has the choice of doing their own thing or
following standards, such as those produced by the IETF. The Internet
has always been a "vote with your wallets" kind of place and certainly
this situation is pretty much the same.
In terms of deployment activism though, it's a serious hit. Lots of
people read that questionnaire and thus lots of people were likely
affected by it's wording choice. IMHO, the only way to combat the
negativism would be a counter article on the subject. There isn't
really many other choices.
