Overall, I agree that it would be very useful to have such tooling.
First thing that came to my mind was that we would want something
similar to the Fedora packages [1], just that it would be tailored to
the Playground repository. Or maybe, in the future, Fedora packages
could handle both, packages in the main repository and packages in the
Playground repository?

I've just added an open question to the Playground repository draft
about whether there will there be co-maintainers, provenpackagers in the
Playground repository.

I think signing should be implemented on the repository level, i.e.
either we'll have all of the packages signed or none will be signed.

I see no need for any restrictions.

The nice thing about a web tool like you suggested is that it could be
developed incrementally and in parallel to building other infrastructure
of the Playground repository.
