Not every domain out there needs what DNS-SEC can give.

Not every domain out there is for a legit site, even if it will use

A site that cares about its domain being verified as being the right site,
would use DNS-SEC. Banks, the root servers, eCommerce, etc.

Problem is, in the days of attacks against organizations being directed at
users, the verifying client can be thrown aside. That said, it's less
problems to fight and makes one front more secure - which is the
infrastructure. Strike, that, less of a wh*re for everyone to (ab)use.
