In fact, I think it is more informative to think of it being bound to
the fingerprint, even though this is not true. The fingerprint
corresponds one-to-one to the public key for all practical purposes, and
the revocation certificate is bound to the public key. However, "public
key" is ill-defined without context. It can also refer to the whole
thing with UID's and signatures and so on, which is not what I mean in
So, yes, the revocation certificate is on the fingerprint ;).
