Yeah, if Noise added signatures they would definitely be transmitted
under encryption (if an encryption key "k" exists), similar to how
static public keys are conveyed.

(The simplest design would just be signing the "h" value with your
long-term key;  but I think we should get more experience with
existing patterns before making the language more complicated...).
