There is no problem with dashed lines and OpenPGP. An openGPG
clearsigned document is simply dash-escaped and while processing this
message (to verify it and remove the armors) an OpenPGP implementation
simply reverst the dash escaping.
However, using those clearsigned messages is depreciated in favor of
RFC2015 (MIME, PGPG).

You may want to use --escape-from-lines together with cleartext
signatures. This is not OpenPGP conform but most implementations
do it anyway.
