Yes I do understand that behavior, but that wasnt explained that way by
And I have understood it so far that Stefan claims Sequoia recognizes
this certificate as valid and therefore continues to work.
To my understanding, Stefen has not yet spoken of a "fallback".
He actually went so far, to urge Werner in a more than rude way to add
this (wrong) behavior into GnuPG.
For me personally, this is still a major obstacle to using Sequoia
productively or to recommend it to our customers. I still regard this
behavior as a gross error that needs to be fixed.
