I noticed the following statement in the JEP:

  In this latter case, the tool can either create a native package from a previously created application image, or it can create a native package directly.

I cannot tell from the command summary whether this option has been implemented or not.

Without this feature, the ability to create a signed DMG is not very useful, except in the case where the tool creates exactly the right application image.
