One for each one of them, yes. Whether they'll want to manually edit =
rings, however, is questionable.=20
Also, there is any number of key servers that might or might not update
each other. You'd have quite a bit of work to get all of them to remove
your key in time before some server that you missed propagates it =
And how do you want to give proof of your ownership of the relevant =

Probably not. Sorry.
What you might be able to do is add a uid or sig that contains a =
to the effect that the key is obsolete. As it will not be validated =
the proper secret key, however, people might not believe it.
