when parsing the secret key, Bouncy Castle is complaining that the
secret key stream doesn't start with a secret key tag (since now the
first packet in the stream is the primary public key packet).
I consider this correct. You can't simply replace a secret key packet by
a public key packet.
Could you by the way elaborate on the reasons why you think it is not
possible to just omit the secret key packet? Clearly the specification
doesn't forbid doing this, so the only reason I could think of is the
current status quo of how parsers handle reading keys?
