If your frontend doesn't give you a feature you want, you could use gpg
from the command line to create a new revocation certificate with the
features you're looking for.
If gpg doesn't want to let you create a new revocation certificate
(probably because you've already imported an old one), you could try
deleting the old revocation certificate from your local keyring (delsig
from --edit-key, i think), saving, and trying again.
"editing" a revocation certificate doesn't make much sense, since if you
modify the certificate, you'll invalidate the signature. Better to
think of it as discarding an existing revocation certificate and
creating a new one.
