I like the idea of a notary signature that only signs a signature packet.
This would mean your signer doesn't even need to see the document that's
being notarized, which has a certain panache to it.

I like this. 

* Change the "revocation target" subpacket to be a "signature target"
subpacket so it can work double duty

Make it mandatory (SHOULD) for timestamp signatures so that already
existing 0x40 signature packets can be distinguished (or ignored) from
the new well defined timestamp/notary signatures.  I don't think there
is a reason to add a special 0x50 notary signature then.
