That isn't necessarily true, since uscan now supports searching git
remotes for the latest tag. So you could have debian/watch (and
potentially an upstream signing keyring for verifying tags/commits)
but not any upstream tarball signature, since the tarball would be
generated by `git archive` run from mk-origtargz.

Perhaps you need pristine-tar to also store the .asc file and check it
out when appropriate.
