No, there's nothing really bad with adding the signature to the merge
commit if you do make a merge. It's the fact that it currently makes a
non-ff merge when that is pointless that hurts.

That said, adding the signature from an upstream tag doesn't really
seem to be hugely useful. I'm not seeing much of an upside, in other
words. I'd *expect* that people would pick up upstream tags
regardless, no?
