So sign all the requests about revoking signatures with your new and

Why would the new one be trusted?

Perhaps because it's already signed by some of the people who signed the old
key, and those people also revoked their signatures?

... and perhaps the standard of evidence to revoke a signature should be less than that to create a signature? After all, the damage from having a false key signed is far greater than the damage from having a true key not signed. False positives are very bad.
