I guess this was answered already in this thread :-)

No need to do this without a trust path at all, it just needs five easy and 
documented steps to add those keys with a trust path, for the backports 
archive see:
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Etch/HowTo/Administration#head-136bb7e75e07e8b6463e6b30761ac51776c5c27d

That said, I would appreciate debian-backports-archive-keyring package in 
Debian main, just like there is a debian-edu-archive-keyring. 

I wouldn't want a debian-multimedia-archive-keyring package in Debian (main), 
as this archive doesnt promise to comply to the DFSG as the other three  
archives do. Contrib would probably fine.

ITPs anyone?


regards,
