With PGP in general Kurt is right. NAI PGP is a special case.
They say they can store their PGP public keys in a directory.
(the client offers such an option)

In our company we were interested in testing this half a year ago.
So we asked NAI's german branch for any information about
the schema needed in the directory server, ...

The answer we got was:
"You have to find out the informations for yourself !
But if you find out we are very interested."

At this point we stopped the project and continued to live
with our PGP key server.
