Why does the root zone have two ZSKs?

Hi;

 

Despite only one ZSK of the root zone is being used to sign the records. i.e. There is no zone double signing, there still is a second ZSK.

 

My question is: Why is this ZSK still there?

 

Kindly

Wasfi

basically pre-publish Method is used, having two ZSK in the Zone concurrently for a certain time to encounter possible caching issues
