I'm delighted to see that the problem I thought existed not only
exists but has a solution as well.
I'd be inclined to extend the content model for <note> to include
<signed>. The WWP example shows a text with "The Author" set off to
the right corner of the page, and my intuitive readerly response is
that this is so much like a signature that you might as well treat it
