I probably should have been more specific.

Yes, that holds for the GnuPG tool, but I was talking about users accessing the
keyserver web interface directly using a normal browser (e.g., for checking on
own or foreign public keys). The CNAME is still used in this case. :)

I was quite surprised to browse to http://keys.gnupg.net and be redirected to
https://analytics.sumptuouscapital.com/ - though luckily only the one mentioned
node does that.
