=2E..but a fingerprint or keyid doesn't assert UID at all. So, when you're=
at a keysigning party, you should demand the UID as well?
Hmmm. I think I agree with this, but I suggest a change to the docs to=20
add as the primary UID only information that should never change, and add
UIDs later to contain email addresses and other ephemeral info after it.
It'd be a shame to get plenty of signatures on a single-UID key and have
your ISP go tits-up. =20
