Hi Stefan

Thats not the approach PGP pursues.
PGP was, is and should continue to be decentralized in the future. It
was never really intended to validate identities in a wide circle, but
to secure communication, and - im parts - to ensure the integrity of

The so-called WOT has proven to me in the field of PGP and does not
really need central instances
