Hi Timothy,

> I suppose it bears mentioning that you should never accept a trust anchor without some kind of verification.  An RFC 4210 rollover announcement is fine and dandy if and only if you already trusted the old anchor.  If you don’t, then you need to go out-of-band, and part of that is verifying that the entity named is the entity you expect.

Exactly, thank you for helping to clarify that concept.
