I still argue that the default should be "yes", with the exact same
argument about principle of least surprise :)

But that could be because I misunderstand the actual question?

Yeah, I think we can expect a number of people to have done that
already. And certainly some who prefer doing it that way.

But surely the system must cope with keys being installed more than
once? More interesting is really what happens if you have two copies
of the key - and only one of them is renewsed for exmaple..

No, I think that is a good name. It shows it's a key for the apt
repository specifically. There is a different GPG key used for the yum
repo, for example.
