There is a good default for certifying someone else's key. the default
is "generic certification" (signature type 0x10), which is the same as
the "I will not answer. (default)" selection in the "gpg
--ask-cert-level" interface.  In my keyring of a little over 2000 keys,
the overwhelming majority of all User ID certifications that aren't
self-sigs use this signature type.

This default interoperates just fine with the existing WoT.
