The only point of the keyring package is to reduce the amount of lookups
against key servers, it's not a whitelist.

Just revoke the signatures and push a new keyring with the updated key
(including revocation signatures) and gpg will figure out the rest. If
they ever come back we can just resign the key and gpg will accept it
again (well I hope it does; never tested that).

Granted, this creates a fair amount of signatures on the keys in
question, but that's how gpg works.
