Hmmm. This reminds me of a wishlist type request I've thought of some
time back: 

I want to be able to specify that two keys belong to the same person and
should be considered equal in trust calculation (meaning primarily: the
hop should not be counted, and signatures with marginal trust should be
added up over both keys).

Just a thought.
