Actually, specifying a mail address with -r or --locate-key changes
GnuPG's behaviour in that it tries to find the key in a configured
online directory (by default WKD).

>> "root:testGpg:key_54503F79_3794_456C_8725_8977A68B71C1"

That is an acceptable user-id.  I would have used a dot as delimiter but
that is a personal taste.
