A long awaited news indeed!

Pity, but I hope it will be better that way.  In particular I hope, that Mozilla will not follow your example and won’t entice users to proprietary isolated keyserver [0] instead of distributed SKS network thus splitting the keybase.  And won’t promote standards [1] that suspiciously resemble embrace-extend-and-extinguish tactics employed against PGP either.
