DNSSEC does not exist.

I don't see any top TLD CA infrastructure agreement breakthroughs on
any horizons, so I doubt DNSSEC is going to appear (excluding a few
minor/unpopular TLDs) in the next few years, and I highly doubt more
than a fraction of a percent of the internet would have it deployed
before the end of this decade.

Trying to get folks to install a DNSSEC indicator in a UI would be
like asking people to install a hygrometer in their cars: yeah sure -
maybe one day later this century when some cars run on hydrogen, it
might be slightly interesting to someone... but seriously...

Kind Regards,
Chris Drake
