It is Google's problem. Because they need to check every time, before sending, if they are allowed to send emails. Otherwise they would/could be spamming (depends on your favorite definition of spam).

The scenario largely rings true, except that I would think it reasonable to tell people that it if it breaks because they added DKIM, it's not Google's problem to fix.
