A push button DNSSEC system does not mean you have to add
email/xmpp/twitter functionality into the Enforcer or the Signer. What to
do with events can easily be managed by wizards and providing example
scripts.

How about adding more events and writing scripts that take their config

+1 more events (we really need a lot more), +1 script examples, -1 config
in conf.xml.

They should have their own config files to separate them from the
Enforcer/Signer, not depend on XML format, not clog conf.xml and to make it
easier to package it separately.
