[Standards-JIG] OpenPGP signing of empty status messages

Hi,

JEP-27 (Current OpenPGP usage) states that a presence stanza MUST  
include a <status> tag with character data, in order to be able to  
sign it. Is there any particular reason for this ? Isn't an empty  
string a string like any other, which can be signed as non-empty  
strings ?

thanks,
Remko
