I wouldn't say that they didn't define trust. PGP has internal trust
calculation algorithms, which happen not to be documented within the IETF.
I have always thought this unfortunate. I agree that trust calculation
should be orthogonal to the OpenPGP message format specification, but I do
wish that it were documented.
You are welcome to write an I-D that describes this algorithm
and present it to the working group. I think this would be in-scope,
and if not we could recharter to include it.
