why? The requirement is for the new key to be trusted. That would mean that it 
is signed by enough [trusted] people. 

I have an old key, signed by a few people. I have a new key, signed by a few 
people (partly the same, perhaps, as signed the old key). Now when a 
new-key-signed request to revoke sigs on the old key comes in, why distrust 
it when the new key is basically trusted?
