This is only the case for the keyserver network that has to the large degree
gone dark. The few remaining keyservers are either configured to be
non-federating (pgp.mit.edu, afaik), or written without that feature in the
first place (keys.openpgp.org).

I would be very much susprised if that's the case (unless the ubuntu keyserver
pulls updates from keys.openpgp.org). Last I looked, hagrid-keyserver did not
support replication/federation.
