That looks pretty much like a re-specification of PKCS#15 which also has
provisions for PGP and SPKI. However, I have never seen an
implementation of that and the whole spec is heavily underspecified to
actually implement something based on this. PKCS#15 at least tried to
unify existing protocols for tokens.

If someone really likes that stuff and want to give it a try, I would
suggest to write it along the lines of GnuPG's gpgsm tool so that it has
a similar external interface. Adding this tool to GPGME would then be
the simple part.
ps. I already have my share of grey hair from implementing X.509/CMS.
There is not enough left for an XML crypto endeavor.
