Hey, thanks for the answers so far! The most important reason for creating and revoking subkeys would indeed be the expiration of used ones. I know I could just set a new expiration date but most times it's recommended to use a key for two years at the longest.
So if I start counting I end up like this: One subkey for authentication, one for signing and one for encryption. This makes three new keys every two years...
