Disabling would work but revocations are a problem because the
samllest entity the key management code handles is the keyblock and
therefore we would have to copy the keyblock to a RW keyring and add
the revocation there.

Things are getting too complicated.  The real way to handle the things
you need is a local keyserver.  Thomas Roessler has a keyserver proxy
which might be extented to fulfill your requirements (I guess you find
it somewhere at ftp.mutt.org)

My opionion is that key distribution should be handled automagically
and the user should not have to think about it.  This is the reason
for removing the trust parameters from the keyrings.
