What I still couldn't understand is how I can sign a key saying "I'm
really sure of the owner's identity, but I don't really trust him
properly handling other signatures" (the typical example is "parents" :)
, but the same applies to a signing party... ).
IIUC your proposal doesn't address that aspect.
