Instead, let's leave message recovery up to the implementors of individual
applications, as an added feature not part of the official open-pgp
standard.  Those who sell into markets where such features are desired can
add them.  The rest of the world will not have to be forced to go along.

While imperfect, this seems like the only solution likely to result in
consensus. A government willing to require a GMR key would not hesitate to
outlaw PGP completely. Like the range of criminals smart enough to use
crypto but dumb enough to use GAK, the range of government anti-crypto
hostility which would require GMR but would stop short of outlawing non-GMR
PGP is very narrow.
