If all packages are signed, I wouldn't suggest turning off a security
feature. Importing the GPG key would be a much better option. Thanks for
that hint!

Eric, what's your opinion - from my point of view the docs suggestion
that Todd has written is already fine and can be published 1:1.

I don't think so. The fedora.us key is only used to sign add-on packages
for 8.0/9/FC1, afaik. As fedora.us has never released any add-on
packages for 7.x, including the key here doesn't make sense.
