I have no authority to answer that question.

On behalf of UniForum ZA (ZACR), I have been teaching customers how to
implement DNSSEC as part of the Advanced DNS Training course in ZACR
land for the last 5+ years. Coincidently, we are running an Intro DNS
course starting Monday (11th Feb) in Johannesburg followed by an
Advanced DNS course the following week in Cape Town. This is a free
course to participants and is run twice a year - see:

I have been running DNSSEC myself for about three years and the majority
of my own domains are signed, both forward (eg 'posix.co.za') and
reverse (124.160.in-addr.arpa). The reverse domains DS records are with
AfriNIC, most of the forwards are with the ISC's DLV system - with the
notable exception of 'dnssec.na' - which has been done correctly (thanks
to Dr Eberhard W Lisse) for the past two years. The DNSSEC (and T-SIG)
services are also available to Posix ISP customers.
