Maybe I should have been a bit careful with my words:

The updated uscan will support debian/upstream/signing-key.asc only as
the recommended keyring.  It will accept other historic keyrings but
also internally converts them to <tmpdir>/signing-key.gpg to guide
people to the new recommended format with some reminder noise.
