Similar traceability applies if the user adds their key to the KEYS
file in SVN at<TLP>/[path/]KEYS

[This file is required for providing the keys to downloaders]

But no harm in adding the key to LDAP as well.

Keys are used to sign artifacts for projects, and need to remain
available whilst the artifact remains available.
That includes archived artifacts.

I'd see that as a hard requirement to meet.
