Is there any reason that the keyserver needs to continue to redistribute
expired, revoked, or otherwise invalid (e.g. superseded) signatures?

I can't think of any.

I can kind of see why you might want to show the full history of a key,
but does it really need to be distributed out to everyone?

If this is a security risk, surely the keyserver options
"import-clean-sigs" and "import-clean-uids" are also, are they not?
