and where is the difference? Still, every DD would be able to kick out
every other DD of the keyring. Obvious the only protection against abuse
is that it should be public. But that does not help much. If someone
removes the key of somebody this causes damage, even if the most obvious
damage (the removal itself) can be fixed easy and quick.
