As Evan said, your signed zone is not public yet.

The only reason to use DLV where the parent (in this case .org) is signed, is
if your registrar does not support receiving DNSSEC information and you cannot
move to another registrar.

In the end, you are better of using a registrar that supports DNSSEC, and then
you do not have to depend on DLV (which not everyone is using)
