I was thinking of situations where the subsitute signing key is
authorized, but substitutes are disabled system-wide.

I don't have a use case for this configuration but, to me, it doesn't
seem far-fetched for multi-user systems. Maybe the administrator is
willing to let users trust substitutes, but doesn't want to do it for
the privileged Guix installation.
