Perhaps that's because a cert problem on a web server breaks a single
webserver.  A cert problem with dns breaks an entire domain.

On the flip side, if you busticate DNS for the entire domain, you're likely to
*notice* it and *fix* it a lot faster.  "Dead in the water" is, in some ways,
actually preferrable to "damn, this may or may not have been broken for the
last 6 months - how many users just gave up and never came back?"
