If a revocation is present, I think most if not all OpenPGP implementations will ignore the entity (key or certificate) which has been revoked. This area is a bit dubious because apart from a few glitches, the OpenPGP RFC only describes the message format, and not the effect of OpenPGP messages on the behavior of OpenPGP implementations.
