I assume you mean the encrypt case (I don't see how this affects sign)? But
still I don't see a problem there. If you don't have a valid key to encrypt
to. You need to get a different key. How is the trust model involved in that?
Once you have that new key you can do the UID / Signature checks I suggested.
