That's for general fiduciary-style audits.  Remember that we're dealing with
crypto paranoia here, for which "a proper audit" is "an audit that's far more
comprehensive than what was applied in audit level X", for any value of X up
to infinity.

In other words no matter how much it's audited and by whom, there will always
be people for which it's not enough.
