This is also handwaving the bit about how we have extremely effective
social tools for determining how to handle contested signatures: namely,
court proceedings.  This isn't a technological problem so much as a social
one, and modern democracies have developed robust social tools to address

A good rule of thumb is to let technology do what it's good at, and
society do what it's good at, and not expect either to do the other one's
work.  :)
