Sure, but that's no reason for dropping differentiation between signer and author.

You're going to need to add extra system-specific metadata
regardless, and hey, look at these nice user-extensible cert things...

Sure, but to show the correct author in 'mtn log' or 'mtn annotate' et al, that would then have to parse *all* possible third-party VCS source metadata certs.

And no, dropping that information isn't an option, IMO.
