Ups, yea you are right, my bad. But that doesn't change my point, that
"expiration date" is something else than "best before" or "best used
until". So if an enforced "expiration date" does not make sense, I would
prefer to rename it to any of the other options and than allow sending
encrypted messages to these keys. Until than you're solution should
work, too. :)
