There's a slight nuance you're missing.  If the arch policy is enabled
and the kernel supports module signatures, do not add an IMA appraise
rule.  A custom policy could require an IMA signature, as well as the
module appended signature.

Saying only use the module signatures, even if the IMA custom policy
contains a kernel module rule, doesn't make sense.

Similarly, if the custom policy has a kexec kernel image policy rule,
it shouldn't be ignored.

The kernel image could be signed with an appended signature as well.

Agreed

With the caveats described above.
