PGP for official documents / eIDAS and ZertES

Hi all,

Can PGP / GnuPG be used in a way that makes signatures compliant with
the European eIDAS[1] or Switzerland's ZertES[2]?

Do those standards explicitly require X.509 based solutions?  Or could a
certificate authority sign people's PGP keys and their PGP key could
then be used for signing official documents?

Does anybody know of certificate authorities who are willing to sign PGP
keys or has anybody ever looked into making that happen?
