You can't do that. It's just not how the web of trust works.
Once you sign the Root CA key, the Root CA key becomes valid.
However, it doesn't make any difference to any key underneath the Root
CA because you must set ownertrust on the Root CA key so that the
validity of the signed key can be calculated.
This applies to GnuPG, PGP, and anything else.
