For it to be non-repudiable, you'd have to demonstrate that the key has not been compromised; that the developer knew what he was signing (as opposed to a trojaned gpg telling him one thing while doing another); etc. Proving those is quite impossible --- especially if he doesn't want you to: He can always compromise his own key, on purpose.
