Thanks, that sounds possible. But I wonder, if there is a reason GnuPG 
won't let me revoke it directly - and if so, if that reasoning is strong 
enough to not even have a way to override it. Since I have keys with all 
user IDs revoked and I only ever used GnuPG, it seems I was able to do 
that once.

The keys I am trying to do that for *are* revoked or expired. That's why 
I want to remove the (immediate visibility of the) user IDs, even from 
the classic SKS keyserver network.


If you upload your address book to "the cloud", I don't want to be in it.
