Summary0006889: some of the exchange's 404 responses should contain signatures
DescriptionWhen the exchange claims that a denomination is either not found or expired, it should include a signature in the response that asserts this fact.

That allows the wallet to automatically handle these cases and either accept what the exchange is claiming (when the signature is consistent with the exchange's data) or to generate an auditor report that shows a contradiction.

0d1ab614..068068f4 implements signed signatures for invalid keys. Note that I combined the existing 'precondition failed' status code into the 'gone' status code, as 'precondition failed' is a bit ugly here anyway, and all of the 'gones' now have the same basic format (and applications have to check the 'code' field anyway to know what it means).
