[ksk-rollover] Future rollover planning opportunities

ISC put about ten hours into the recent rollover - validating and testing, etc. To our way to thinking, the roll-over was far more of an event for the resolvers than it was for us. That probably says something about the frequency of roll-over events - if they were happening daily or weekly and we were putting ten hours into each event, we would begin to be concerned, but if they happened quarterly or annually we don't think we would be bothered - and might even think it was a good idea.

The key consideration is that key rollovers are a "usual" event, and as such the key(s) should be something learned from the root and the root servers, not something configured or compiled into the resolver software.

We are also planning to hold a number of outreach efforts in the coming months to capture further input. These sessions are being led by the ICANN’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) in coordination with IANA staff. These sessions will be at:
> 	• ICANN 64 in Kobe, as part of the DNSSEC workshop;
> 	• IETF 104 in Prague, as a proposed BOF; and
> 	• The 3rd ICANN DNS Symposium in Bangkok
> The feedback we receive will be used by the IANA team to develop a draft plan later in the year that we intend to share for public review.
