Is that your interpretation or in any way official? My respective search 
engige efforts were not successful.

This point of view would have quite strange consequences: For how long shall 
you be forced to keep a key? Even longer than before (if you change subkeys 
regularly)? Why should you have to accept that police can read future data of 
yours, data which they do not have a warrant for?

Unfortunately for quite a while we have seen that there is a lot more between 
UK and the rest of (continental) Europe than just water. Maybe we will finally 
see the EU shrink for the first time.
