Yes, becuase it can't know whether the next part is actually suitable
for inlining:

   The multipart/signed body MUST consist of exactly two parts.  The
   first part contains the signed data in MIME canonical format,
   including a set of appropriate content headers describing the data.

The first part itself may be an image, audio, multipart/encrypted or
even multipart/signed again.
