I'd guess so. My experience is restricted to S/MIME part of GPG used through 
kmail, but when a person has two valid certificates I'm presented with a 
dialog asking me which cert to use for encryption.

Small note though: I can save my choice and I won't be asked again about this 
e-mail. I'd say that other MUAs have similar abilities.

So, it's not foolproof, but should be usable as long as the user knows what 
he's doing.
