I haven't looked at the links yet, but what is your purpose? Do you 
want to detect rogue keyservers in the keyserver network, or perhaps 
attacks on keyservers?

There is no need to trust keyservers in the Web of Trust, or even in 
TOFU (as I assume in the latter you got a signed message from the other 
to start things off, and the wrong key would not verify the message). 
Still, it could be interesting to see if the keyserver network is 
somehow messed with, I suppose.
