You could check that the keyserver has actually accepted the key by using a
web interface - that would prevent you losing the key.
What do you mean by local keyserver - does it synchronise with the other
keyservers? Doesn't it have a web interface?

why? You've probably now lost the secret key too.
Yet another useless key on the keyservers that cannot be deleted or revoked!

This would only import the public key anyway - if you've generated this key,
people searching the keyserver would be justified in hoping that you had the
secret key for it!

So have you got the secret key stored somewhere because any keyserver will
only ever return the public key.
