I don't know of specific solution for this, but it seems to me
that it would be better for you to add this (and other) email
addresses to your pgp signature, IIRC it is pgp -ka.

And then of course, send the new public key to keyring-maint@debian.org
so that your changes work with dinstall (archive maintenance tool)
and stuff like that.
