I have a series of Internet Drafts, Code and podcasts that propose a
mechanism that does pretty much what you suggest building on the
S/MIME message format and ideas from PGP.
Since neither camp is willing to give in to the other and one has the
mindshare, the other deployment, the only real way forward is to
provide a mechanism that is a worthy successor to both.
90% of the work that went into the S/MIME message scheme was actually
all the backwards compatibility with email while supporting MIME
Key servers are one approach, and a good one. There are others.
