The Duplicity project clarified the effect of this change on the
integrity of the backup archives:

"Duplicity does a hash of the entire file so the MDC is duplication of
effort. [...] You are still protected by the hash stored in the
manifest." [0]

Based on that, I think the disabling of GnuPG's integrity check is not
that important in this case.
