Speaking for myself, I have "rfc4880" in my gpg.conf for damned good

I *do not* want GnuPG to generate UID-less certificates in strict
compliance mode, I *do not* want GnuPG to use them in strict compliance

I have no opinion on "--allow-broken-certificates" and only allowing
them to be generated in expert mode after a clear warning about it being

I also think this is the wrong place to talk about how the RFC should be
changed.  Take it to the WG, please.
