Personally, I followed the instructions in your wiki exactly,
and they did not work.
I created a gpg key, and took the asci version to pgp.mit.edu,
and it worked perfectly.
I tried accessing subkeys.pgp.net,
and I got re-directed to <http://lists.maluska.de/mailman/listinfo>
which firefox could not find.
Maybe I'm lucky, but as far as I am concerned
MIT runs a service for registering pgp keys,
which works perfectly well in a completely transparent way.
You register your key, and then you check that it is registered.
I see absolutely no advantage is following an indirect route
which achieves the same thing (if it works, which it doesn't for me)
in a mysterious and roundabout way.
