The primary use case here is not the user agent, but the signer (and a  
potential application store):  It gives them a standardized means to  
refer to a single signature, in their audit logs and whatever else  
might come up.

There is no user agent behavior out of this one; however, like with  
the serial number that you have in X.509 certificates, it's going to  
be worthwhile having an identifier for the signature.
