With an explicit subjectKeyIdentifier we need to agree on a way to
store it in a PGP key. Or we agree on how to use implictly create a
subjectKeyIdentifier from a PGP key.
This thread started with incompatibilties between different
applications and a non-standardized way of creating a
subjectKeyIdentifier for PGP would lead to such incompatibilties.
