Yes, digitally signed offers are important for us.  Signed offers
combined with coin deposit records provide a cryptographic
proof-of-purchase for customers. 

I'd kinda imagine signatures would be relevant for any scheme that tries
to keep dispute resolution costs extremely low, what we like to call
"true micro-payments".  Anything based on a credit card might be
spending enough on dispute resolution anyways that they need not care.
