What's next? 'splain "braindamage" in this context please. DNSSEC - signed data in the zone. wildcards - part of the spec. if vt.edu wants to place a: * in a 184.108.40.206 in the vt.edu zone, why should anyone complain that now vt.edu doesn't return NXDOMAIN for all un-delegated entries? You want that everyone should hack the DNS to force NXDOMAINS for your wildcard? Feh. DNSSEC will tell a validating resolver the signature of each party that signed part of the chain. If Verisign wishes to sign bits of data that might exist under the delegation point they have responsibility for, I'm in favor. Its not "make-believe" ... or perhaps I don't understand your angst.
