That is the whole pint of the web key directory.
It maps a mail address to a key. It is possible to map several mail
addresses to the same key but the key needs to carry a user ID for each

I am not sure what you mean by wildcard. It would be possible to do a
pre-mapping of mail addresses like:
foo at example.org -> foo at example.org
foo+a at example.org -> foo at example.org
foo+b at example.org -> foo at example.org
bar+a at example.org -> barexample.org
however such a + delimiter is not a universal standard. We could
implement a simple scheme like the above on a per domain case, though.
