Note the multiple signatures. This will allow implementations to "split"
the "core" cryptographic portion of a signet from the "full" signet,
which contains the optional "information" fields, like the image,
address, phone number, etc. "Splitting" is mentioned in the current
draft, along with definitions for the different types of signet, but it
wasn't fully discussed.

One of the survey questions I submitted to the list asked whether org
signets should also support "splitting?" Currently, only user signets
can be split.
