Not that I know. This thinks are just in rfc2440 because someone may
need it in the future. Notation signatures ahve already been in the
old pgp 2 - but I don't know of any use.
One hint: If you decide to use notaion data, please make sure to have
names (NAME=VALUE) which won't conflict with any other names. There
are no rules on how to choose names yet, but I think the scheme used
in the SSH protocols is is applicable:
Use a name and append a domain name over which you have full control.
For example, the GNU projec might choose:
-N foo at gnu.org="bla bla"
If we ever come to register names we can make clear that names which
are registered will not have an at-sign.
And don't put large amount of data into these notations - view them as
meta data of a signed document.
