The former was proposed a couple of years ago and iirc, I was a major
voice against.  Meanwhile, afterh the meltdown of the keyserver network
we should bite the bullet an do it like it has always been done in CMS.

Better have a dedicated subpacket than having everyone squeezing it into
a proprietary notation.
