Which is not a modernization issue.  It's a feature request, and the
feature you're asking for is DRM.  Literally.  You're asking that the
keyserver network be rewritten to give you the ability to manage how
information, which you think belongs to you, gets shared: that's DRM.
DRM schemes are awful and they don't work.
