I uploaded -05 update so that next comments would take into account changes
I already did based on discussions with Murray (as was copied to this list).

The biggest clarifications related to how DNS queries are sent to different
servers and when all servers are waited for answers (if reply is not
validated) and when not. I.e. this text:
   A node SHALL send requests to DNS servers in the order defined by the
   priority list until an acceptable reply is received, all replies are
   received, or a time out occurs.  In the case of a requested name
   matching to a specific domain or network rule accepted from any
   interface, a DNSSEC-aware resolver MUST NOT proceed with a reply that
   cannot be validated using DNSSEC until all DNS servers on the
   priority list have been contacted or timed out.  This protects
   against possible redirection attacks.  In the case of the requested
   name not matching to any specific domain or network, first received
   response from any DNS server MAY be considered acceptable.  A DNSSEC-
   aware node MAY always contact all DNS server in an attempt to receive
   a response that can be validated, but contacting all DNS servers is
   not mandated for the default case as in some deployments that would
   consume excess resources.
