Sorry that I don't yet fully understand you. If step 3 is done by
by Alice, the public can see the document C and the pair (X, Y)
of visual cryptography signed by both Alice and Bob and with
X and Y verify that what they have signed is identical to C.
I don't see what a person that verifies the transaction between
Alice and Bob would additionally demand.
