Some likelihood now apparently being that it was kind of a user-failed
key... But there are no keys that the user may create, sign messages
with, and then successfully abandon and get the web to just forget
about them, I'm afraid...

It the case is such, should the owner revoke it and post the revocation
cert? An awkward situation, isn't it...

But we would need a confirmation that we are right about the
unavailability of this key from keyservers, or an affirmation of the
