Parallelly, build trust on your 4096R key (or a EC one, or whatnot). And when your new key has been around and carrries enough recognition, request the update, we (keyring-maint) will be happy to do it. Please understand key endoresements are a very new and not fully proven and understood method to cope with a series of changes both in the technical and the social infrastructure we live with. We have yet to learn how to properly juggle with them. > @Pierre-Elliott: That sounds as a 'door opener' to me and it would eliminate > at least one of the reasons for your doubts, wouldn't it? I certainly hope so!
