While I concur with you, Christoph, there's one minor error that should
probably be corrected:

> No keyserver is a CA...

Most keyservers are CAs, in that the people who run the keyservers have
signed other people's keys.  The Web of Trust is really a buffet table
of CAs, where you get to choose which CAs you trust and which you don't,
and your network of keys emerges from your CA trust decisions.

If what you meant to say was that keyserving is a totally separate
function from being a CA, though, then I agree with you.
