True they are not understood by all implementations but
they don't need to be. They only *need* to be understood
by the authoritative servers for the zone.
Also any server that supports the current DNSSEC specification
(RFC 403) is *required* to support DNSSEC.
I used DNAME for years to support my ip6.int zones.

Linking the master files also has the penalty of more memory
usage in the servers and more zones that have to be transfered
when the content changes.
