This should be easy enough to fix/hack around - the verifying code  
could easily store the information in the parent multipart/signed  
Viewer and/or part so that all other children parts can access this

I assume you are talking about the "fake" parts created from the  
armored text.  That was a rough first implementation (my personal  
motiviation to play around with armored messages is limited because it  
was deprecated ages ago) but a necessary one since armored messages  
may contain multiple parts inside of them.  Display of the 'x-imp...'  
part is best hidden at some point in the future (the part is currently  
necessary because it is the only place that contains the full text of  
the message necessary to verify the signature).
