For the initial setup a physical ceremony is necessary,
to check there's no extra subkeys and for secure transmision
of them. But afterwards there's no need. Each node can check
the final signature validates with the public key (just like
a normal signature), and the plain data should be public
(DNSKEY rrset).

In this same first ceremony you can also share simmetric
keys for the secure transmission of data and signature
pieces.

The system is fault-tolerant as a subset of nodes can fail
and the signing process can be completed, and you can
detect faked sub-signatures.
