a) You always want to use fingerprints instead.

b) You do not need any reference to a key anyway because it is 
absolutely clear which keys this statement refers to if one key signs 

c) I would like to handle that with an generic notation. I see a strong 
need for an expression about the relation of the signer to the owner of 
the signed key. It makes a big difference whether I say "This is some 
foreigner which has shown me some ID (see separate notation for 
details)" or "This is my sister". Thus I would like to have a notation 
"relation@" which would in this case have a value like "identity" or 
"self", maybe with some additional information like "self: business".
