Anybody easily able to nutshell incisively how suited these data integrity proposals are to making data not copyable on purpose?

Yea, any reasonably skeptical filesystem is slow to believe that what it read is what it wrote.  Sure, raising our confidence in the authenticity of the data we read is part of why people like digital signatures.
