The certificate generation wizard should urge the user to create a revocation certificate, at least prior to allowing him to upload his key to a server. The user should be able to skip this step but be warned about implications.
Also, when saving the (secret key), the dialog should propose a default file name like "UID (KeyID).gpg/asc".
important feature. Who can help implement this?
I agree that this is important. There should also be a way to generate a revocation certificate manually, which there currently is not.
note that gpg 2.1 automatically creates revocation certificates in `~/.gnupg/openpgp-revocs.d/` upon key creation. Perhaps if kleopatra is using an older version of gpg as a backend, it could do the same? this would avoid the need to add any special user interface initially.
