This message should not be shown by default.

I disagree, it indicates that the integrity of the archive is unknown. I think having the ability to disable it per-archive might make sense (some sort of flag that's specified when registering an archive, perhaps).

The whole confusion here was my thinking that checksumming and signing where inseparable. Converting the archive to a signed archive is very little effort and gives me integrity guarantees.
