You're very welcome :-) however, the work is not quiet yet done. Next steps are:

  week of 2011-02-21: IN-ADDR.ARPA zone dropped from B, C, E, G, I, M root servers
  week of 2011-02-28: IN-ADDR.ARPA zone dropped from A, D, F, H, K, L root servers
  week of 2011-03-06: DS record for IN-ADDR.ARPA inserted into ARPA zone

At the end of this process every subdomain of ARPA will be fully DNSSEC-signed.

Query rates on the new servers (those operated by the RIRs and ICANN) are currently low, but are expected to increase as the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone is dropped from root servers. Some stats on the ICANN-operated servers can be found here:
