Section Appendix D says:

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    new DS             |        pre-publish                    |
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Parent:

It should say:

                            RRSIG_Z_A(NS)

Notes:

Figure 15 in Appendix D is depicting the phases of a double DS KSK rollover operator change. One rationale for applying this approach is to avoid the exchange of signatures (RRSIGs) between operators, and limit exchanges to the public parts of the ZSKs in use. In the pre-publish phase in the figure, it is shown that Child A publishes a signature over the DNSKEY RRset generated by Child B's KSK, and that Child B publishes a signature over the DNSKEY RRset generated by Child A's KSK. This is contrary to the rationale given for this method, and also not required, since the pre-published double DS RRs at the parent zone should enable a validator to validate the signature generated by any of the two KSKs in use, thus one RRSIG RR for the DNSKEY RRset is sufficient at each child. Therefore, the RRSIG_K_B(DNSKEY) RR should be removed from Child A, and the RRSIG_K_A(DNSKEY) should be removed from Child B.
