Another Stefan here, but still ;-)

Changing the key should be advertised in advance, in prominent places.

Really the best solution (if possible) would be if the new key could be 
signed by the old one and thus automatically accepted by zypper et al.
I have no idea if this is even possible, nor how to implement it in OBS. 
A plain "osc signkey --create" will simply wipe the old one and create a 
new key, but that would cause a bad user experience :-(

Maybe we should ask security-team at suse.de for help on how to handle this 
best? They surely must be prepared for updating a key.
