That doesn't seem likely to work.  AIUI the sks recon protocol doesn't just 
ensure that all members of the network have a copy of every key but 
that they have the same version of each key.  If the recon adapter 
only deals in stripped keys then the reconciliation could never finally 
succede and I suspect that an SKS server connecting to it would
be launching a DOS attack on itself.
