You can definitly do that, if you are a important enough customer.

Because it _is_ quite a useful feature. And - who should be allowed to
sign it? Everyone who has a gpg key? Everyone who is a DD? Why place
the additional burden of signing mails?

If it _really_ is a problem (please be aware, we had that only once
till now), then there are better ways to control it. Including from
verification, as it _is_ currently done for the mailing lists.
