As I see it the optional message-digest and or digest-messagedigest is
only advisory since it can be removed in transit and the receiver doesn't
know it was there..

We might want to put into the "digest hashed data" a flag that is set if
you also sent a Digest-MessageDigest so that it's removal could be detected.
