Hi folks,

I've taken a stab at putting together some security considerations text for
draft-ietf-tls-dnssec-chain-extension that reflects my understanding of the
current state of affairs.  It's in a pull request at
https://github.com/tlswg/dnssec-chain-extension/pull/19 , along with Viktor's
commit to update the text about the actual DNS records involved (which as
far as I can tell seems to improve the technical accuracy of the text), and
also inserting a variable-length array that's reserved for future attempts
to mitigate the (now-)documented security considerations.

I'd be interested to hear what aspects people agree with and disagree with,
whether on- or off-list.

Thanks,

Ben (with no hats)
