Seems the only reasonable thing... for now :)

Usually at office they give you a card with an x509 cert on it... And
you have to use it.
But sometimes they let you optionally use other means to sign your mails.
Ability to bind a specific UID with a subkey (implying having multiple
valid encryption keys) doesn't seem too useful...
