They allow that but you need to have a key prepared for this:  Revocation Key

   (1 octet of class, 1 octet of public-key algorithm ID, 20 octets of

   Authorizes the specified key to issue revocation signatures for this
   key.  Class octet must have bit 0x80 set.  If the bit 0x40 is set,
   then this means that the revocation information is sensitive.  Other
   bits are for future expansion to other kinds of authorizations.  This
   is found on a self-signature.

("gpg --edit-key, addrevoker" to set such a key and "gpg --desig-revoke"
 to issue a revocation)



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
