I am not sure this is feasible. Locating it in the dist site seems standard
to me, though I do not know whether it is an absolute must. If there is no
compelling reason to move it, please keep the file there, but make sure
your public key is contained in it.

Francis, you can simply add your key, no matter whether the release is
accepted or not, and preferably before the release is voted on. It is no
problem if there is no release for a key in the KEYS file.

I'm not sure whether I understand you correctly, but the file
repo/trunk/tools/KEYS.txt is fine as KEYS file. Just make sure the file in
the dist directory has the same content.

Yes, I checked that. But everybody can upload keys to a keyserver and call
themselves Francis De Brabandere, so this is no real protection, just
