It would be great if GPG Keychain could provide a visual indicator on the main list of keys that would make it obvious when a key is unusable due to an expired encryption sub-key. Currently, it seems only the master key's status triggers a change to the validity column and the row itself being greyed out indicating it's unusable. However, this often leads to users extending the expiration date of the master key but forgetting to also go extend the expiration date of the subkey.
