Re: How do I do this with OpenPGP?

You should use the signature expiration time subpacket, in Trent's
signature on the key.

One of the nice things about OpenPGP is that multiple signatories are
possible on a key, each "meaning" something.  Basically, it trent signs a
key, it's OK with me for (purpose A), and the fact that Carl signed it too
for some other purpose is beside the point.

But, I want Trent to be able to certify a key for a certain time period.
Tag 2, type 0x10-0x13 doesn't contain a date.  I suppose there's a more
complicated way to do this, though?  type 0x1F says "...for statements that
non-self certifiers want to make about the key itself" so maybe something
in there?  Or certifing one of the (time range) subkeys instead of the main
