TBL speaks of signing metadata to provide provenance (the source of the
information). Wouldn't sources of spoofed metadata eventually (rapidly?)
develop a ruputaion for unreliability?

Fundamentally, the reliability of metadata is an issue, and ideas of
provenance provide a means of assessing the source of the metadata.
