It would be useful to allow negatives to handle cases where only some of the file's data is useful. For instance, if the timestamp on /foo is unimportant, but the checksum and permissions are important, replacing the timestamp with a dash like this:
f ./foo 0644 0 80 - 143 Bdp3AU5vhGF5kiNgj/s691L4ES4=
would result in the timestamp not being checked.
