Decouple DANE and DNS

it would be great if you could decouple all the DANE stuff from the rest of the library. This would remove the dependency to BouncyCastle from the library - which is awesome, by the way :-)

BouncyCastle is not only used in the DANE stuff, it is used for more or less all cryptographic stuff of the DNSSEC classes. And splitting the DNS and DNSSEC classes would be very tricky.

Because of that: Sorry, you have to live with the dependency.

@hkrause: Using BouncyCastle is wise - The .NET Framework built-In encryption classes are not very cross-platform, nor very good and easy to use, plus you never know when they're calling the WinCrypt-API, which is NSA-backdoored.
And BouncyCastle is an excellent library, fully-managed code, backwards-compatible to .NET 2.0, and forward compatible to .NET Core already, wouldn't know why you wouldn't want to have it in there.
