Fine, but that still doesn't verify that the key it is trying to import is the key you are wanting to import. In order to verify that (i.e. check the key signature), the manual step is required.

Since package signing keys were part of whatever the "infrastructure issues" were, it would seem prudent to verify them before importing them.

Agreed. It is a great idea. I suggest verifying keys to everyone. I just wanted to be clear that it wasn't REQUIRED in any code sense.
