Should I wish to sign, or should somebody wish to send me something
encrypted, to some address with a suffix, my key will need a uid
containing that suffix, as far as I can see.

Therefore, should it prove necessary, I will presumably have to add such
uids as necessary to the key.

On the whole, I think this will probably only rarely, if ever, be
needed. But, if it is, at least I know now.
