I'm thinking something along these lines could work without
signatures, just with checksums, if they were distributed
(semi-manually!) to nschk1.example.com, nschk2.example.com, etc. --
perhaps behind RRDNS.

Having to check WOT is not easy, and a simpler method involving only
commonly builtin routines (DNS, HTTP, checksums) would be easier to
get built into libraries such as Redland.
