Not yet needed. I could implement gcry_pubkey_testkey to allow for RSA
and DSA public key fixup. Shall I?

The key representation in the API are not a problem performance wise.
There are lot of options to speed up public key computations. gniibe
recently applied a patch which not only restored RSA performance but
actually improved it a lot. Recall that there has been no performance
work for 10 years or so.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
