Adding a designated revoker

in a corporate environment here is a need to control validity of keys from the organization.
On the one hand keys are signed by the corporate signing keys to show that the key is a valid key for the organization. This is easily managed by having a trustee sign all users keys after appropriate checks.
On the other hand, there needs to be a way to invalidate the key. For this, making the corporate signing key also a designated revoker is a proven solution.
Unfortunately, GPGTools does not support this, so the user has to go to the comandline to edit the key and add the designated revoker.
It would be nice to have that functionality in the GUI.
