It will have no effect to set the trust value on a key that does not
have a signature from a ultimately trustet key (your key)
You can sign the uid´s on their keys with a local signature, such a
signature will not be uploaded to keyservers or exportet with the key.

Do a local sig, or if i remember correct, there is an "always trust" option.
