It could be worse. I had to get some legal papers notorised with a 
seal at the US consulate a couple weeks ago because Australian JP 
witnessing isn't enough. $55AUD each for two sets of papers.

I guess a bonus was seeing the Ambassador arrive (this was in 
Melbourne) on the day the Syrian situation was coming to a head. But 
now that I saw yesterday that his term is ending, it was probably a 
farewell meeting with staff at the consulate.

Back to your point - it would be nice to have a reciprocal agreement 
on signature witnessing among Five-eyes, digital or not.
