Can't call it that as long as it's under user control (every long option of the software has an equivalent config file option. You don't add such a key via config or command line, no adsk will happen as it's not configured). If you're using gpg built by your org, you have no trustworthy environment anyway.

And the feature needs to be supported by the client.

In the face of email having been hijacked by the corporates/Micros~t+Exchange and intrinsically broken S/MIME, practical relevance: close to zero.
