This is the correct type of RFC.


Technical Summary:

This document specifies two different ways for validating DNS resolvers
to signal to a server which DNSSEC keys are referenced in their chain-of-
trust.  The data from such signaling allow zone administrators to
monitor the progress of rollovers in a DNSSEC-signed zone.    This
document describes two independent methods for validating resolvers
to publish their referenced keys: an EDNS option and a different
DNS query.

Working Group Summary:

The working group was in strong consensus behind this document. One thing
which did emerge was that there was a division over two methods for
publishihng the keys (EDNS option vs a DNS query).  It turned out that each
method had its positives and its negatives.  The consensus from the working
group was to offer both alternatives, documents the flaws in each.
