Comment (by gk):

 While thinking about comment:10:ticket:13407 and that it probably is wise
 to "just" have a role signing key due to just one key for verifying our
 MARs I was wondering whether it would be feasible to take advantage of
 reproducibly built MAR files given that no human interaction is
 interfering here. This is definitely worth a new bug if it is worth one at
 all (and I am volunteering for coding this actually). Given your knowledge
 of the MAR signing code Mozilla provides do you think there are general
 obstacles to extend that to add support for a verification method relying
 on more than one key?
