Re: [openpgp] Manifesto - who is the new OpenPGP for?

Long story short:
I don't think that OpenPGP was ever the system of the masses, and
perhaps it even shouldn't be.

I think differently - I think a system that doesn't target the masses is doomed.

OpenPGP does not specify a UI. "Target the masses" implies some kind of UI or use case or *something*. OpenPGP is a format for packing bits together and specifying how some of them were encrypted/signed. You can build any kind of PKI I've ever seen on top of OpenPGP, because it's just a format and doesn't specify such details. This is as it should be.
