Perhaps the draft is not clear enough about the distinction between
"signature separator for the purpose of rewrapping" versus "signature
separator for the purpose of displaying a sig". The draft is talking
about the former, and has nothing to say about the latter. For example:
The quick brown fox
jumps over the lazy
How now, brown cow?
The first "signature separator" is classified as a signature separator, rather
than a flowed line, in order to prevent it from being rewrapped like so:
The quick brown fox jumps
over the lazy dog.
-- Joe Smith
But its classification as a signature separator for this purpose doesn't
mean that "Joe Smith" will be displayed as a sig. A message body has
only one sig, and in this case it's "Jane Cooper".
