It's a very bad idea. And probably worse than useless. It will create
confusion because there would be >1 place at the registry to find DS
records, even if they are fed from the same back-end database. Looking
for DS records in whois would be foolish if they're already in the DNS
where they'll presumably be covered by an RRSIG?
whois is orthogonal to DNS and should remain that way. As a general
rule, registries don't publish whois data in the DNS, so why put DNS
data in whois?
