Sure, we have a problem. Far too many people are using MUAs
that seem incapable of following standards. I fail to see what I can
do to fix it, apart from telling people: USE STANDARDS COMPLIANT
If you want to be pedantic about it, ballots need to be either:
a) Mail messages compliant with RFC 2015 (issued in 1996), and
updated by RFC 3156, or, if not using MIME,
b) An unmangled RFC 2440 complaint OpenPGP message as the body
How you do that is entirely up to you -- I would not presume
to tell my peers how to send mail, after all. However, the following
page, though outdated, does seem to be of interest:

Well, sorry, but I do find that it, umm, tickles my funny
bone to see in LWN, no less, a tongue in cheek article about the
difficulty people are having just sending singed email. I promisre
to try to be more sober in the future.
