This whole confusion stems from the fact that someone
introduced the term "sign" (over simply review) into the GUI

GNUmed simply does NOT OFFER any way to *sign* a result
without reviewing it. Of course, going back to front, having
reviewed a result does imply that it is signed off. But this
does NOT imply that a result can be signed without a review.

On paper this may work - results are expected to be flagged
*already* and thus can simply be signed off by -- gasp -- a
second (!) reviewer.

In that sense it is only logical that applying "nothing"
will not "sign" -- because simply nothing exists to document
signage without review.

Quite logically, the term "sign" must come under scrutiny:

        - review
        - evaluate
        - flag
        - ...
