Change the "fedora Legacy" project name to "Stability Response Team",
"updates-released monkeymen" or "Deep Update Attack Tigers!!!".  Stick
an article or two in Red Hat Magazine saluting the work of the maintainers.

Agreed on that 100%.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but right now there isn't a per-release key
used for fedora core packages.  I don't think its appropriate to hand
over the keys across Core/Legacy bounary unless Core moves to
per-release keys which Core is garunteed not to use again in later

Beyond that, I really do not think it makes any sense at all for
legacy and core sharing signing keys...ever.
I think that was a metaphor rather than GPG keys. Atleast thats what I agreed to.
