This is perhaps a stupid question but how far are these two standards 

I've seen a document that proposes some things in that area 

My question now:
Can X.509 certificates be used to sign/certificate OpenPGP UIDs?
Or can I import the keys as subkeys?
Or are there any other interoperability issues?

What about the two big "free" X.509" suppliers (CACert and Thawte) do 
they sign OpenPGP keys?
