We (Debian) currently have only generated official PVM (paravirtualization) based AMIs on AWS, and have yet to make an HVM images - which is what the larger instance types require.
Right now I am slowly working on getting the switch to build-debian-cloud to use the python implementation for AWS AMIs - and to pull in cloud-init from backports (almost done - just need to finish writing my sed plugin - should be done in the next week or so in time for Wheezy 7.2). After that I'd like to finish S3 backed AMIs, and then HVM EBS 64 bit.
I love your point on signed AMI IDs. I'll post a signed message when I generate them (my previous emails to this list have included IDs, but haven't been signed)
As always, patches (pull requests) welcome: https://github.com/andsens/build-debian-cloud/
Thanks for the feedback - keep it coming! :)
