Presuming that this last refers specifically to root zone KSK rollover,
my impression is that it was not mentioned much by the "DNSSEC is bad"
people until it became obvious that it was going to be more difficult
than was originally envisaged.

If it is indeed the case that it is now the most commonly raised objection
to DNSSEC, this could be because the other ones mentioned above are looking
increasingly flimsy.
