[wix-users] Shouldn't burn verify the bundle's digital signature? (3.10)

It's unfortunate that it doesn't check before cache verification.
The resulting end-user facing message (a common dlg asking for a file)
results in support calls.
It *should* be simple for the engine to perform a signature check (assuming
it was not itself damaged).
I was hoping I could write a ba to do this, but looking at
balExtension\wixstdba it doesn't look like it has access to the source
bundle path.
