[foaf-protocols] DNSSEC and RFC4255

So I am aware that the DNSSEC has been agreed/finalised (whatever the correct terminology is), and the way this can be used to work as a PKI via the adoption of RFC4255 . So, as far as I can tell this means that one could start securing communications to their domain via https, using their ssh key fingerprint, which is in turn propagated through the web via DNSSEC (or something). Naïvely, that means that we will no longer need to give monies to CAs (companies) to have signed certs.
So two things:
1. I wonder if I have got any wrong above, am I confused about something here?
2. What implications does this have for foaf+ssl? I guess it means that it will be easier to have trusted https based WebIDs such as : https://example.com/person#i ?
Anyways, I do apologies if I have got any of this wrong,
