Would there be any objection to a new subpacket type for OpenPGPv4 that

Alternately, what about a new subpacket type that simply includes the
entire 160 bits of the issuer's fingerprint? (the "full fingerprint"
I like this idea. I would do it as "full fingerprint" myself. The difference
in storage between 160 bits and 96 bits is all of 8 bytes. I think the
simplicity of being able to say the whole fingerprint is in there is worth a
measly 8 bytes.
Do we necessarily need a new subpacket type for this? It could pretty easily
be a notation.
