Quoting myself from this list, 13-Oct-2005:

    PKS does not handle V4 key features well. Notable examples of mangled
    features are multiple subkeys, a revoked subkey (tag 0x28), duplicate
    keyids, direct key signatures (tag 0x1F), revocation signatures on userids
    (tag 0x30), or photo IDs. There is also no development or maintenance being
    done on the pks platform.
