child KEY RRs in parent zone

RFC 2535, 6.3, states that a KEY RR record of a secured zone may be
present in the parent zone. If A parent decides not to include the childs
KEY RR in its zone, how can V8/V9 (dns)signer be instructed to sign the
childs key (without the key being included in the zone). I think it
cannot. If that's the case then ehhhh, well ehhhh, what then ?

Might this (child key not mandatory for parent zone) be the reason that
the -p (p1,po,ps,no-p1,no-ps) are not in signer V9, or is it just a beta
issue ? 

Okidook, thanks allready
