As long as the non-256 bit symmetrical algorithms (IDEA, CAST5, 
3DES, BLOWFISH) will remain part of open PGP, and the MDC needs 
revision eventually to move up from SHA-1,

then can the MDC be modified to apply to the non-256 bit ciphers as 
(or at least amend the gnupg error message to a less ominous one, 
that MDC's are not generated for non-256 bit ciphers) ?
