It doesn't exactly.  It queries for the key itself, and if a
revocation cert is attached, it uses it.

Excellent.  I made the URI changes in the GnuPG keyserver code that we
discussed, so it is now possible to specify both a raw URI method
("dns:") as well as a method+opaque ("dns:whatever"), and a
method+host ("dns://whatever").
