My suggestion is to host a .deb repository at kernel.org with kernel .deb's
provided (and signed!) by kernel.org people. the old kernels would be removed
and new ones compiled, preferrably automatically and uploaded to the

The repository could run a custom made dinstall or some script alike and hold a
meta package that always depends on the newest kernel.

This way you would reach most of your goals, you would just need to publish the
source line somewhere that people could find it.
