I have read the three paragraphs (out of 165 pages) that "Grundladen der
elektronischen Signatur" spends on this. They say (words to the effect of):

(I see there could be use-cases for the chain model, as there could be
use-cases for any validity model, but I'm asking if anyone knows a

mind for most cases the chain model is overly risky, no?)
