It's just as good as verifying the signature of a key with short ID 4F25E3B6. As
you can soon see elsewhere in this thread, I don't think it practically adds
anything. Proper verification of the key requires not relying on the short key
ID, or even the long one for that matter. It means you check the fingerprint of
the key, which is much longer.

You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
