looks like the latest draft doesn't really encourage RSA....
Implementations MUST implement DSA for signatures, and ElGamal for
encryption. Implementations SHOULD implement RSA keys.
Implementations MAY implement any other algorithm.
so, if one were to make an RSA-only key, that key would not be strictly
openPGP compliant? one would have to add an ElGamal subkey, for full
in that case, what would be a good way (or ways) to force the sender to
use the RSA encryption key, and only use the ElGamal encryption key if RSA
isn't supported on their end?

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket
fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who
hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not
clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It
is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its
scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of
life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is
humanity hanging on a cross of iron."
-- Dwight Eisenhower, April 16, 1953
