The key did not expire. It's the "Valid-Until" date set in the (signed
with a non-expired key) Release file that elapsed... and this is exactly
its purpose.

Let you know when you don't have the latest version and right now there's
no "latest version" any more since the release is no longer maintained.

Lenny did not have that feature so you were subject to replay attacks
(showing you an old mirror with known security vulnerabilities).
