If all you want is integrity then shouldn't you argue that every 
computer should operate a DNSSEC validating recursive resolver on the 
machine? After all that is the point of DNSSEC after all isn't it, the 
validation of DNS records for endpoint authenticity.

Even still SNI isn't even widely supported by the major browsers as I 
understand it.
