I can't speak for all of them of course, but I have dealt with a
non-zero amount of frustration on the part of some of those keyholders
after a signing party when old e-mail addresses that were supposed to be
working no longer are, etc. For myself, I'm certainly glad that I
created 2 separate keys.

Right-O, so kudos to the OP for doing so.
