Don't really understand this question, but see my prior messages about the 
threat model.  I have yet to understand what problem the signatures solve, 
that couldn't be addressed more simply by putting records at the relating 
and related domains that point at each other.

Presumably one would use the PSL to find the appropriate places to look.

Since the records have new rrtypes, I don't understand what you mean by 
"overloaded".  Underscore prefixes are mostly for TXT records and these 
are not TXT records.
