It does no verification at all abeout the relationship

But this is what signatures usually express.

The robot only may say:
"I don't know anything about the person, I have only checked a small piece
of its digital reresentation in the Net"

IMHO knowing nothing about the a key owner but the validity of his mail
address is a typical case of dealing with a "pseudonymous user".

Rather hurry to set up your policy!

Signings your bot gives today can't easyly be redone tomorrow.
