Could there be a feature that would be similar to the "unwrap"
feature, but that would give you just a standard signature, without
it being in a packet with the data?  Then you could decrypt the data
yourself and send its cleartext, along with the signature, to others
for verification.  They could verify the signature as they would for
any clear-signed message, as if it had never been enrypted.
