However, it does not make sense to put an X.509 address into an
OpenPGP key.  No mail program will use it.  PGP has a hack to include
an actual X.509 key into an OpenPGP key but there is no standard for
it and GnuPG does not support it.  

If you really want to have your X.509 DN in the user ID of your
OpenPGP key, I suggest to use the comment field.
