digitalmars.D - Reading on D safety?

Safety of C has been in the (hacker) news lately [0]. When I 
tried to tell people about D, I had no good link to share on the 
topic.

The spec for  safe [1] is not comprehensive.

The article of SafeD [2] is fluffy and without much meat.

The C to D comparison is too much irrelevant stuff.

I found nothing on the blog.

The topic of safety is an important one imho. It comes up again 
and again. D has a good story to tell about being easier than 
Rust and safer than C++. How should this be addressed? A blog 
article?

I'll be presenting on the topic at DConf and will be following up with an article. I agree as to the importance of the topic.
