I will reply even though I'm not Warren:
Yes, this is correct, it needs support in every validating resolver.

In other words, this mechanism suffers from the very same upgrade
problem as RFC 8145.

I've implemented a prototype of draft-huston-kskroll-sentinel for Knot
Resolver, but later I've realized that whatever we do is largely
irrelevant when it comes to collecting reliable data for *this* KSK roll.

We should go ahead and implement draft-huston-kskroll-sentinel but I do
not see it giving us data for KSK-2017 roll.

This is how I arrived to conclusion that KSK-2017 will inevitably
involve some out-of-band fixes and press coverage, similarly to any
other security issue these days.
