I'd rather see validating resolvers using a forwarder mechanism so we don't
have to trust ISP/random wifi nameservers at all.

It's cute, but I don't think its really needed anymore. The cool thing about
re-using the NS record was not so much to just provide a pubkey in dnscurve,
but to provide privacy. Dan's NSDS record does not do that. The competitive
nature of the registry/registrar model will ensure most of them will support DS
records before any NSDS code has been written and well tested (IMHO)
