Second,the idea that a MITM on the keyserver is a problem is totally bogus. There is no security at all in the keyservers; they are only a convenient resources to store and retrieve keys. OpenPGP keys are self-contained and provide their own security: self-, key-, and key-binding-signatures. Any attack must be on the keys or the validation system in use (e.g. the web of trust).
