The lack of delinearization makes this rather fragile: if someone
fails to check a key signature their key can be canceled. Having to
carry around those signatures also makes this approach unsuitable for
some applications e.g. where keys are used once and the group is
formed by the verifier instead of the signers, in that case the
additional signatures plus the collective signature require more
bandwidth and computation than normal single party signatures.
