Good observation, but we don't have such a concept (yet) (AFAIK), all
the foundation docs refer users to the KEYS file.

Agreed that it would be useful, moving forwards, to keep the abridged
list of KEYS.current in addition to KEYS (historical), for some
definition of 'current' being over the past 12 mos or expected to be
used in the near future.

But I don't think we can or should change the defined use of KEYS.
