Why? Generally dnsmasq (or other lightweight) DNS server beat BIND

implement it. That's why BIND should not be marked as irrelevant on this

 Okay, so I asked him.
 His reply:

You're right that dnsmasq attempts to preserve security information: to the extent that signed packets are passed through bit-perfect to avoid breaking the signature, It doesn't, however actually know about DNSSEC at all.

My attitude is that I'm very happy to take a patch which implements checking (preferably with suitable #ifdefs so it can be ommitted, if it's big). I'm not in a position to do the work myself at the moment. I don't have the knowledge, and I don't have the time to aquire it.

 IOW, our standard mantra: "patches accepted." :-)
