I fully agree with Peter here. dnscurve is not a standard and we don't
know whether it will be adopted by IETF, or some other idea will
succeed, or if it will be kept intact once adopted by IETF.

Dnscurve has some problems, but I don't want to go into the detail
since this discussion doesn't really belong here. (And I won't discuss
it here.) But I do object to implementing such a dramatic change in
behaviour of unbound as dnscurve is.

P.S.: Also I would recommend to not spread FUD about DNSSEC in this
mailing list. We don't want to have a flamewar here.
