This conclusion cannot be drawn from the gpg behaviour, of course. You have to 
look at the standard. After that you know whether gpg conforms to it or not.

Why should any problems arise from that? As long as the sender can encrypt and 
the recipient can decrypt... Doesn't matter which subkey is used, does it?
