I can't come up with a situation where sign, encrypt, sign again w/
*same* key used in the first signature gives more security than first
encrypt then sign. So two layers are enough.

I (partially) get your point: receiving an encrypted message could
mislead an uneducated user... But I doubt someone w/ access to top
secret material falls in that category :)
