Hi Jürgen,

thanks for confirming and your explanation.

I must admit that this is all new to me.

I think this may be also a good thing if it would be accepted
by the PGP community, say if someone lost his/her GnuPG
revocation certificate and passphrase for his/her secret key
that one could sign a document too containing the key data
etc., like i proposed with my intial posting.
