This one is a red herring. I'm paid to work on LTS updates. Others are
paid to work on Debian packages for the benefit of Canonical, etc.

If Microsoft is willing to trust Debian as a supported platform, maybe
they can be convinced to trust the Debian administrators and the
respective teams in charge of the building the images?
And in the worst case, you don't have to share the keys. You let
debian.org build the images and then you download them, check
them and upload them to Azure clouds from a credativ server.
