dhss could be replaced with sig in some patterns. I think an advantage of
this might be avoiding KCI to the responder prior to the initiator's first
transport message providing confirmation (per KEA+C).

One usage of this that comes to mind is taking care of the TODO in
add_new_keypair: https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/tree/src/noise.c#n113

OTOH, I really really like the simplicity of signature-less noise.
