Yes, that is the current behavior of the Enforcer. But we actually
only recommend manual rollover for ZSK. There is no point of doing it
for the KSK since we are anyways waiting for the DS.

In the case of Pre-publish ZSK rollover, it would be ok to pre-publish
the new ZSK. But then wait for the user to give the rollover command.
