Right. There is also the little twist that if a mail provider announces
mailbox-only and the user id also has a real-name gpg-wks-client
creates a new user-id with just the mailbox.

It can be read out and will eventually be used for key validation
heuristics. Option --with-key-origin and in the --with-colons output
fields 19 and 20 of uid and pub records.
