A "sub-domain" of DE need not be delegated from the DE zone.  There 
may be intermediate zones.

Why is there a "winner" (unless I'm reading too much into that). 
Ties are good too.  I.e., if the DS-based trust chain validates OR 
the DLV chain validates, the data ought to be accepted.  Even if the 
OR is exclusive.
