Sure. All I'm saying is that introducing a second centralized CA PKI does not 
strike me as a good solution.

Actually, I think this is more of an educational or a social problem than it 
is a technical problem. The problem you have to solve is that people blindly 
trust the UIDs. You cannot counter people's ignorance about how OpenPGP and 
the WoT works with technical means.
