You probably can guess my usual remark:

The format gpg's keyring is not a standard but an interal format of
gpg.  It is just coincidence that PGP uses the same format and that it
resembles the defined transport format.  So don't blame gpg if the
format of the keyring changes at one point in time and messes up all
your scripts.
