Actually we do not need an armored keyring, just a file with armored
keys. The GnuTLS openpgp support makes no real difference between
a key file and keyring. It's only important that the file contains a
sequence of openpgp packets which form a valid key {public or private}.

Because keyrings formats are not described in the openpgp message
format. It's up to the implementation to define a suitable format.
But, as Werner pointed out, transferable keys needs to follow the
openpgp format.
