The reason I suggested a FAQ addition is not covered :-)  At least not by the 
headlines. There should be a paragraph "Why does GnuPG not support more than 
4096 bits?".

@ "Why does GnuPG use 2048-bit RSA by default?":
Does the g10 smartcard not count as a reason for RSA default?

@ "Has GnuPG ever been successfully attacked?"
That sounds like there has never been a security problem. El-Gamal signatures, 
anyone? Furthermore:
