I think that should be implemented despite of the way goverments are 
Goverments are often trying to restrict cryptography (see US) and also 
here in Germany (using X.509 only which is in my opinion less secure 
than OpenPGP as its using a hierarchical certificate system).

So why not just implementing ECC for GnuPG and making the first step for 
a (new) OpenPGP standard?
