We worked with NamesBeyond (http://http://www.namesbeyond.com/), and Dyn to make sure there were at least two registrars capable of taking keying information from registrants.  Both also run DNS service for their customers.  We tested both systems, including the ability to transfer a signed zone from one to the other without losing either registration or validation.

GoDaddy subsequently implemented DNSSEC support, but I don't think they are providing signed operation for their customers yet, but I might not have kept up with their offerings.

I'm ideally looking for registrars who just handle the entire DNSSEC operation on behalf of the domain registrant.  My target is more consumers and others who just want to have a secure domain name and don't want to get into setting up their own keys or anything like that.  I'm looking for simplicity.

I believe NamesBeyond and Dyn meet your needs.
