I thought this was the sole fixed requirement for keysigning.

Why are you requiring key signing at all when it has no defined semantics?
Many DDs check only the government issued photo ID for signing a key and
this is also how keysigning parties work, but if this is considered
optional there is do defined meaning to a signature.
If you as DAM do not have a problem if DDs have own policies that do not
require checking a government issued photo ID, then I do not see why the
key signing requirement exists at all.
