No, these two items do answer what I really wanted to know very nicely, at least to my satisfaction, thanks much for taking the time to answer.  In a nutshell, the QA people only ever work with unsigned packages, you keep them tagged with unique tag ID's, and when it's signed it's Golden.

While this thread has taken a few sweeping off-topic turns (not a small number of which I'm sure I'm at least partially responsible for), I've learned yet a little more about these processes, and I hope others have as well.
