|  Revoking a self-signature or allowing it to expire has a defined
|  semantic meaning.

IMHO, the draft does not specify the semantics of expiration in a way
which would warrant such statement.  I don't believe we can agree on a
specific set of expiration semantics even in the limited circle of
this WG.

BTW, the referenced paper (http://www.counterpane.com/pgp-attack.html)
is definitely worth a read.
