A small fix: I never asked RIPE to make a comment to the NTIA
consultation. Quite the opposite, I was in favor of not
answering. But, since it seems a large majority of the RIPE DNS
Working Group was supporting the idea of a comment, I did participate
to the discussion to make a better comment.

They are not wordsmithing, they simply take into account the fact that
the entire issue is non technical. The US governement clearly does not
care about DNSSEC, it just wants approval for its process and for its
oversight. DNSSEC is just an excuse.
