as far as I know, DNS64 and DNSSEC are fundamentally incompatible, because 
modifying A records into AAAA records breaks DNSSEC.

Since we now have implementations (from what I understand at least APple 
does this) that do bump-in-the-API, would it make sense to work on a 
document that recommends to just use DNS64 just to discover the NAT64 
prefix, and then do bump-in-the-API synthesis to do the A-to-AAAA 

I really care about DNSSEC and I don't want this to be broken for a 
prolonged amount of time just because people are doing NAT64+DNS64.
