Metadata I manage locally is sitting on my IdP disk, there's no need to sign it.

If I pulled it in from outside, I'd verify the aggregate, and then chop it up and it would become local, so again, not much need.

This is for SP metadata of course. I haven't considered doing anything for the IdP side at this point, having only one federated SP and that one needs discovery.
