No, since 2019 Gpg4win longer signs using the old key and I think since 2016 
we signed with both keys to deprecate the old one, so I think just having the 
new key available is completely fine. E.g. If we were to rollover to a new key 
I would sign for some time using both keys but then I would only want to 
publish the new, stronger key.

The old key is still used by some "historic" apt repositories that intevation 
still publishes, so it should not be revoked.
