This is not sufficient, even if you only consider syntax (have a look at the MDC stuff which is certainly not compliant to the current incarnation of OpenPGP). In practice, for real interoperability, you need much more than a common message syntax, and I think most interoperability problems are not related to syntax. (Certainly, this is my experience.)
