While what you say is true, IMHO it is still a good idea to split
signing and encryption keys. By all means use RSA for both if you
want to. It would not, however, be a good idea to go back to the PGP
2 model where keys have dual roles.
Of course, DSA keys give shorter signatures while RSA keys are faster.
