In the postinst, this:

+       if ! [ -e "${KEY_CONF}" ] ; then
+               cp /usr/share/doc/keystone/keystone.conf.sample ${KEY_CONF}

violates policy 12.3:

     Packages must not require the existence of any files in
     `/usr/share/doc/' in order to function [1].  Any files that are
     referenced by programs but are also useful as stand alone
     documentation should be installed under `/usr/share/<package>/' with
     symbolic links from `/usr/share/doc/<package>'.

see also 10.7.3, which suggests to put sample config files used this way
in /usr/share/<package>.
