My understanding is that Yahoo! is aware of this. They just haven't been
able to schedule the cycles to rework their UI to show the same annotation
for DKIM as well as DomainKeys. It is on their list though.

They still support DomainKeys because there are some important signers out
there (i.e., big phish targets) that still sign only with DomainKeys and
not with DKIM. When they switch, Yahoo! can end-of-life their DomainKeys
support. Unfortunately, that's not happening very fast.
