The general policy is this: people who retire on their own, are put in
an emeritus keyring and can come back by mailing the keyring
maintainer (doing this should take days or maybe some weeks); people
who don't retire on their are put in a removed keyring, and have to go
through NM.  (Those keyrings are not in the debian-keyring package but
their are in the source package.)  There are probably exceptions, though.
