No, 1.1.5 supports RFC6637 but not the ed25519/curve25519 variants

hkp:// requires SKS 1.1.6, I've been
pondering requiring the main pool to use this , which can be discussed
if we want to push ed25510/curve25519

that said, you can download the full key using &clean=off in the query
to keyservers, as that removes any filtering by trying to read the
packets of the keyservers for SKS < 1.1.6.
