You actually think China will be the first to ban DNSSEC?  Maybe,
but It will probably be banned first indirectly,  by governments
legislating requirements of SPs
that are incompatible with DNSSEC.

The repression is at home in the form of the US PROTECT IP  bill that
will provide
a framework for DNS authorities, domain registries, and ISPs/operators of
non-authoritative nameservers to be sent letters requiring them to modify DNS
responses for other organization's domains  based on allegations/suspicions.
