PS: As a point of notation for the RFC, isn't it DSS?
Or are we saying that DSA is implemented because it

DSA is the Digital Signature Algorithm. DSS is the Digital Signature Standard. DSS specifies DSA+SHA1 plus operational whatsits. If you use DSA with RIPE/MD-160, for example, it's not DSS. 2440 does cover all of this.
