Not really. It was a quick hack to not specify anything. We should
have written SGML so that it is clear that the users need to ask for the
DTD - which could be anything of course ;-). I would propose to change
the doc to say XML-like and explain your questions.

Use gpgme_op_create_key instead. Not as flexible as gpgme_op_genkey and
works only with 2.1 and (right now) OpenPGP but a much cleaner
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
