You are missing one item: even if you sign the zone, the root does not
delegate-signed towards your zone.

Hence, even if your zone is signed, those signature won't be trusted and
thus the zone won't work anyway.

The reason why your zone currently does not work is because there is no
signed delegation towards that zone; hence the zone, in signed fashion,
does not exist.

As per other mail:

Should solve that.
