This has been going on for weeks now, I have been hoping in vain that 
the issue would clear itself, as Frank suggested, before I posted here. 
It doesn't look like it is going to. So, are we saying that 
deb.debian.org, http.debian.net and httpredir.debian.org, being the 
same, are all "borked"? Doesn't feel right, more people would be up on 
their hind legs yelling for footnotes if so, no?

The fix for the key ID issue looks straightforward though, thanks Frank 
and others for that. I'll try out this 
download-and-put-in-the-right-place approach, that's new to me. Should I 
make efforts to remove the old key Google were previously using?
