Please do not follow Dan Mahoney's suggestion here :/

The prompt you're trying to address is about fixing gpg's perceived
calculated validity of the key, *not* about how much you trust the owner
to make proper certifications.   Trust signatures or edited ownertrust
should not be used to adjust the validity of a single key's user ID,
since an adjustment like that will have other unintended consequences
(e.g. the holder of the key whose ownertrust is elevated will now be
able to fool you into thinking that other key+uid combinations are
actually valid).
