Let me add that folks need to understand that the "patch" is not a fix to a
problem that has been there for long time and
it is just a workaround to reduce the chances for a potential
attack, and it must be combined with best practices and
recommendations to implent a more robust DNS setup.

There are plenty of documents out there (check for example) that
can provide some guidance.

Perhaps this situation will help move things on the DNSSEC front, as far as
I remember there are some IETF drafts on
the standards track addressing these issues.
