Suppose that Canonical's evil geniuses have found a SHA1 collision
between the text of the CoC and a text promising to be Mark's personal
slave.  We ask people to sign the CoC, then later mwah-ha-ha reveal
that they seem to have signed the other text.

I don't think this is worth putting in the ui.  It indulges an
unattractive irrational kind of nerdiness.
