Just an update on this...
I finally opted to bring with me the incorporation/registration
papers, which list me and my personal address, which establishes a
link with my "employer" (using my IDs where my address is). Also
brought a company invoice with my name on it.
During the keysigning that I attended, most people were surprised to
see a request for signing a "corporate" key. Most agreed that I sould
sign it, and that my web of trust would extend to this corporate key,
but that I did not need to have both signed. Some people also
suggested to put the fingerprint on letterhead and other places. It's
on our WHOIS record now, as someone else suggested.
On this fascinating subject, somebody also wrote me this, which is
more or less the same, only better explained:
