Trusting someone with the ability to push binary packages out to every
Arch user seems like something that should have a pretty high bar.
It's not just trust that they won't do anything malicious, it's trust
that they'll look after their key and won't allow a situation where
someone else would have access. They need to be able to work with the
rest of the team and take responsibility for any mistakes they make.
