Generally: Decryption works fine even with a revoked key. However, if
there's only the slightest possibility that the private key is not
solely under the owners control, then encrypted files should be
decrypted and then reencrypted with the new key.
One should never ever delete a revoked key - there still might be a
forgotten old backup encrypted to the old key!
