Two files with the same MD5 digest

So let me get this straight: The salesman created two contracts: one said $200 and the other said $4000 and they both have the same MD5 digest. I signed the MD5 digest. The Accounts Payable people are pretty stupid then, aren't they? With $4000 at stake, they should demand a signed copy of the full contract.
But I'm sure if we think hard enough, we can find a case where signing a whole file is impractical and this twin-file technique would work.
