DS for COM was added added to the root zone in Feb 2011.  The process
of getting COM signed started a lot earlier well before the root
zone was signed and included ensuring the protocol worked for COM
sized zones.  But hey if you just look a when records are added to
zones you wouldn't see that.

Requiring new zones start at the standard you expect existing zones to
obtain is neither unexpected nor unreasonable.
