Does this quote make it appear to be built on a framework of PGP, or
one of Warm-Fuzzy.

"Autocrypt first aims to provide convenient encryption that is neither
perfect nor as secure as traditional e-mail encryption, but is
convenient enough for much wider adoption."

Verification seems to be controlled, or at the least strongly influenced
 by, the party wishing to be verified. No method is mentioned
for avoiding man-in-the-middle attacks.
