In GNU Herds, an entity-or-account-or-user is identified by an email address.

It is true that people can have more than a GPG key for the same email. 
However I think when users decide to enable the GNU Herds' encrypt-email 
feature they just choose one of his personal keys to encrypt with.

They choose one of his personal keys, and fill it in GNU Herds.  IMHO it is 
not needed GNU Herds supporting the management of more than a key per entity 
because GNU Herds will only use one key to encrypt at time.  See for example 
Savannah. Savannah has a field for the GPG key, no more.

IMHO there is no needed to add complexity if such complexity will not used. 
Such complexity will not be used because such complexity is not needed.

So, IMHO, the right design in this case would be add a field to the 
E1_Entities table, no add another table with E1_Id foreign key.
