Are we now at the stage where it is more important to retire these
shortish keys, than to insist on this cross-signatures ?

I.e., perhaps it would be better to invite key rollover from a short
key to a long one despite the lack of 2 other DD signatures; or
perhaps even despite the lack of _any_ other DD signatures.

Instead, the keyholder could perhaps present a signed key transition

A downside is that we would probably have to keep the rolled-over
short keys somewhere, at least to maintain the integrity of our
records of why a key is in the keyring.
