I was the one who brought up DRM.

What Stefan and Listo want is some mechanism by which, if I have a copy
of their public key, I can be prohibited from sharing that with a
keyserver.  How I get to use data in my possession is controlled by a
third party -- that's DRM.  In this case it's a voluntary, half-assed
DRM scheme, but it's still in the family of DRM schemes.
