Could you say a bit more about the issue is with signing?  I wonder how much the issue is the complexity of trying to get teh bandwidth savings of signing across multiple frames vs just doing a single frame. 

There are a few uses  that is think is fairly common which drive the need for something like signing. Imagine you have a bot listening to the call to do real time transcription and translation of the call. It would be nice to give that bot read access to the media but not write access to contribute media. If the media is signed, this is fairly easy to do by blocking the bots ability to contribute to the mix but it is not clear how to do this without something like signing.
