[ksk-change] Helping the panel name the reasons for the KSK rollover

Both ZSK and KSK DPSs were written and cleared by all the root zone
management partners design team (VRSN, ICANN, NTIA) so I believe DPSs and
requirements documents are consistent with each other.  
That was my understanding...we would roll but when was up for discussion.

Do you see a contradiction?  
Happy to hear what others think.  I am not the best at details like
Jakob+Fredrik were.

Is that subsumed by "DPS statement -- Section 6.5 of the DPS for the root
zone says that the KSK will be rolled over after five years of operation,
and that time has already passed.", or do you consider the contents of that
footnote a separate issue?
