It is my experience that this does NOT work with gnupg, at least not for key signature verification! See my post Up to now nobody has even so much as commented on my findings (prove me wrong, please ;) except Werner saying he was very short on time (I believe you are and it is not my intention to bother you more than necessary). Even more, when I imported the keys from my tests into pgp (win32) to see its reaction, I found that it is impossible to change an expired key's trustlevel (in pgpfw 6.5.8)! I can therefore currently not recommend using expiration dates on keys at all. The tools at hand seem to have problems with that.
