Kinda-sorta.  The basic keyserver architecture was designed in the very
early 1990s, and it's really quite resilient against the sorts of
threats we saw in the 1990s.

But the threat actors and their capabilities have vastly changed since
1992, and the network was not designed to be secure against the threats
that would emerge a quarter-century later.

> So why is the network made immutable by design?

If you don't understand how this was important in the 1990s and why,
perhaps you should take that as a hint you don't know the system
anywhere near as well as you insist you do.
