For the record: I certainly (and I doubt Paul) envisioned that this
draft would be useful and deployable to every possible
TLD/registration-point.  It, hopefully, will be desired by some.

Though ones that want to "convert" hanging glue in their zone to something that this
draft could accommodate should be able to insert a new zone NS and
delegate to their own servers with a new zone (and new dnskey).  The odd
corner case someone mentioned is if the NS record was pointing to
company.example, rather than or something.  Then
there is the interesting discussed question of whether company.example
can delegate an NS to its own name [curious minds want to know].
