So many people that it you can earn money from typing mistakes. 8-/

I don't know what a DNSSEC indicator would achieve.  Large parts of
the net aren't transparent for DNS anymore (neither at the resolver
level, nor UDP/53 transport level).  The absence of a DNSSEC security
indicator would only confuse the user unnecessarily, particularly for
mobile devices which can run DNSSEC in some places, but can't in
others.
