Lets just use "user agent". I don't think we should have a notion of a
"widget user agent". A user agent is one that attempts to implement
the said specification; that is, one that only implements signatures.
It should be possible to build a user agent that only processes
signatures and is unaware any other of the widget 1.0 specifications.
