I dont see a problem in requiring the user to get the key from the debian
homepage whenever they want to verify a different distribution. What you can
du is to have a Debian CA key, if you want to ship a trust anchor with the
archives, but I dont see a need for it, since you need to verify it with
other means anyway.
