Even if the syntax you specify is used, the warning message I originally asked about is still issued.  (The message is only displayed in "verbose" mode).

Perhaps it is your intention to display that message any time a secondary key is used, no matter how the secondary key was selected.  That seems to be the way gpg is behaving.   If so, It's just a little confusing for DSA/ElGamal since it is not possible to use the primary key for encryption.
