Hi Benjamin,

Sorry for the delay, I was out for the week...

I think so. The PGP part just fit nicely to the private/public key 
scheme, it shouldn't be a requirement for anything.

Just like IMAP and POP having several authentications methods (including 
no authentication at all) but none being compulsory.
