Some weeks ago I asked about this, and after talking to some other people,
they suggested to raise the issue again.

Gnupg should handle revocated sigs. One of the uids in my key belongs to a
host that has died.=20

L. Sassaman answered to my previous question:

So, anyone thinks gnupg can be taught to ignore non self-signed uids or those where the sig has been revoked? I hope someone can come with a solution to this problem.
