We don't plan to sign themes so in bug 1038068 I just marked them as SIGNEDSTATE_MISSING but the UI we added shows that as unverified. The UI is doing the correct thing here, we should add a SIGNEDSTATE_EXEMPT or something as an "ok" state for install and use. It's either that or we'd have to expose the types that need signing to the frontend and I don't want to do that.

I realised that other add-on objects in the UI that don't use signing at all (plugins, lightweight themes etc.) just have signedState == undefined. That makes sense for any add-on type that we don't care about signing for. This switches to that and also consolidates the logic for what signedState is into the verify*SignedState methods.

The periodic check will serve to update signedState on existing add-ons so even after this lands it will take a day give or take to correct existing themes unfortunately.
