If I understand it correctly:
- the only information added by SWILD RR is an explicit information
about the original (unexpanded) name of wildcard owner
- the very same information can be obtained from RRSIG RR in a
synthtetised answer (RRSIG labels < owner name labels)
- SWILD will work only if there are no nodes below the wildcard

Assuming this analysis is right, I'm against this proposal.

We can get even better behavior from aggressive NSEC use. Here are
advantages of aggressive NSEC use:
- does not require changes to existing authoritatives or signed zones
- less fragile (if we consider manual SWILD specification as an option)
- supports wildcards with nodes below it

Yes, the aggressive NSEC is limited to DNSSEC-signed zones. I think that
is okay: New features are provided only by the latest version of
the protocol.
