I have not closely followed all the thread.  Just to mention that the
upstream-keys branch or separate Git repository using Software Heritage
or as backup require some tests for complete robustness.

I have in mind some examples where it is not “trivial” to get back from
SWH; because their cooking vault is slow, because the repo is big or
complex, etc.

That’s said, I agree that Git seems the easiest for preserving keyrings.
