Minor nit: the application/pgp-signature MIME-type (per RFC3156 and the
Media Types registry) is more likely to be served if one of the common
filename extensions is used.  "File extension(s): asc, sig"

GnuPG in particular is able to determine the filename of the signed file
from the filename of the signature, when given --verify with only one
parameter, if the signature file has a ".sig" or ".asc" extension.
GnuPG defaults to ".asc"
