No.  This was the point of the lead-in paragraph in what I wrote:

} or
} should it also be useful when people are trying to migrate to an
} algorithm not yet implemented in GnuPG, years from now when WKD is the
} ubiquitous infrastructure for pulling keys?

If WKD is assuming that "new enough to support WKD" means "new enough to
support the latest key algorithm which people want to use", then that
assumption will age poorly.
