Perhaps it would be worthwhile to add a question to the signing process:
"Have you met this person face-to-face and verified his/her identity?
(y/N)"  If the user answers no, display a warning that the user probably
wants to lsign, not to sign, and give the option of making an lsign instead.

It might cut down on certifications such as these...
