I also favor compartmentalization. But reading <https://keybase.io/>, I
don't see any requirement to include all online identity information,
provide government-issued ID, etc, etc, etc. I already use Gravatar
Wouldn't Keybase just better link all that to Mirimir's GnuPG key? Or am
I missing the point? Is there an expectation that Keybase usernames are
not merely pseudonyms?
