I agree with the OP that it is not necessarily easy to become a part of
the greater GPG / Debian web of trust. As a simple Debian user and
administrator, I have never had the occasion to meet a Debian developer
A while back I started a thread about how to properly verify the Lenny
iso, which Steve McIntyre helped me out with.
Basically you can use the debian-keyring package to obtain keys of many
Debian developers. You can have a high level of trust that those keys
are real because the package is signed and apt-get would notify you if
the signature was not real. The iso you are downloading should be
signed by someone in that keyring.
