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?"
