I could always raise a bug report, but when it comes down to it, I'm finding 
it hard to express why I think that I'm right and they're wrong.  I just feel 
that Ultimate should be reserved for your own key and ones that you have 
properly verified.  Yes, I've seen the argument that the passports I checked 
could have been forged, but they had been inspected by immigration, so I'm not 
going to worry about that :-)

I hate mysteries.  Even when it's something that doesn't stop me working, it 
really does bug me until I've sorted it.  :-)
