I think we still have an confusion on what we have the --no-retire for. See discussion from 4 March 2010.

You mention that --no-retire is for those who have overlapping KSKs. But is that even possible to do in OpenDNSSEC without hacking in the database? 

So the --no-retire will only delay the current rollover until the ksk-retire is given. And since we can only have one flow of keys within the zone, then we know that the new key is what we are going to rollover to.

I think OpenDNSSEC should know what keys (DS RR) that should be in the parent. And that is those who should be sent.
