And a fortnight later, i've finally gotten around to writing up a draft:


The git repository mentioned there is:


This is just one small part of the puzzle -- it attempts to answer the
question: how to we package and transmit OpenPGP keys into X.509?

There is also code within that repository that validates these
certificates against the OpenPGP WoT, but it relies on cooperation from
the various applications -- they need to know when to ask for validation
and how to describe to the validator the context in which the
certificate is being proposed for use.

Feedback welcome,
