The relying party however cannot know so easily whether an agent is trusted or not, so the agent should still sign all claims (we could even provide a mode in which it is possible to sign all claims at once rather than have a signature for each of them).

The question that then follows is: could we say that all agents working with a specific authority are trusted as long as they sign their claims, implying that the authority has to check and validate each and every agent, or should authorities provide lists of which agents should be considered trusted...?
