Your disagreement is making me nervous! By pushing back on DNSSEC, you
appear to be implying things which scare me. Either there's no risk
from DNS spoofing under or else there's something other than
DNSSEC that will prevent spoofing or the consequences of that spoofing
don't matter. Please tell me it isn't so.

I would be glad to hear of some way of countering DNS spoofing attacks
-- in general, not just for ENUM -- so if you have ideas on how to do
that without requiring DNSSEC, I would very much like to know more
about them.
