Agree. I asked just to be sure :)

All user IDs will be valid if key is valid and trusted (i.e. I have
called 'trust' in --edit-key). I have some keys that are valid but
are not trusted. Werner's key is both valid and trusted...
OK, I am satisfied with your answer, thank you.
Another question: is default of --min-cert-level is 1 as man-page
states? I have different results with
$ gpg --min-cert-level 1 --update-trustdb
$ gpg --update-trustdb
I use gpg (GnuPG) 1.3.6. The option is not changed in any
