Perhaps they are like me in that they want to be known by their actual
address rather than the alias. When people want to
reach me I want them to send their email directly to Bjorn at Rombobjö
(or to Bjorn at if their email client doesn't understand
IDNA), not to an alias in another domain. It doesn't hurt that an alias
exists, and it may be useful to automated stuff in the Fedora
infrastructure, but I prefer not to advertise it outside of Fedora.

Perhaps you should publish only those keys that have a address?

It seems to assume that everything is ASCII:

$ openpgpkey --create Bjorn at Rombobjö
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/openpgpkey", line 189, in <module>
    if "<%s>" in uid:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position
14: ordinal not in range(128)
