As a comment on the document, then (that is what we're discussing,
right?), I'd note that the plan for allocation of a special-use name
contained in the draft does not state clearly (at least in my reading)
whether it is conditional on receiving the relevant unsigned
delegation.  If it _is_ so dependent, then that would be important to
know.  If it is _not_ so dependent, then probably some additional text
is needed (maybe in the security considerations) about the likely
failure of DNSSEC or resolution in such a context.

I hope that's helpful,
