I understand your concern, but since a large part of the security model of OpenDNSSEC relies on the signer being secure it's a rather large change. if that would not be the case, I think we'd have a lot of other issues that might be important as well.

we could however considering adding a "are you sure?" question to the more "destructive" commands of ods-ksmutil. would that help?
