I'm not sure that this is 100% correct. The first part is true, but
signatures of a key that has been revoked because it was superseded or lost
are valid up to the revocation date, whereas ROCA-affected keys are
compromised to some degree and so all signatures are suspect; the
revocation status should, ideally, reflect this.
