That was /before/ DNSSEC-bis was sent to the IESG. I thought the point of
sending it to the IESG was that people in general felt it was deployable
now (as do I, in certain circumstances, and indeed DLV widens those
circumstances considerably). I thought the whole point of the debate
as to whether the w/g should reach consensus to send DNSSEC-bis to the
IETF was so as not to delay deployment whilst the w/g worked on the
question of whether to / how to solve some additional issues that had
been raised, primarily enumerability. If you thought enumerability
was going to delay deployment, notwithstanding DNSSEC-bis having been
sent to the IESG without any fix, why send it?
