Not exactly either one (but certainly no objection to Comcast deploying
DNSSEC).  I gather that you didn't follow the link.

If you read the linked article
you will see Comcast admitting that it's been interfering with correct
DNS results, attempting to prevent customers from reaching Internet 
locations Comcast deems undesirable.  This fact emerged because,
Comcast, reports, their DNSSEC deployment will prevent that 'DNS
redirect' technology from working.

Next time, try following the link.
