Preserving public keyserver network (Re: Which keyserver)

If it is a technical challenge and Kristian as head (pool maintainer),
why does he not ask publicity
the hockeypuck author, dkg and the sequoia-team, for help?

As an example, if I would be Kristian I would do so, set-up with my
pool gang a hockeypuck
test-net (bootstrapped with a handful of pub keys) and work with the
programmer(s) on long
standing issues. Secondly I would give my gang a timeframe of a couple
of months to
gracefully shut down their SKS servers.

Would that have any disadvantages for GnuPG users worldwide, while we also have
Mailvelope and Hagrid?
