Arch Linux impacted by new defaults in 2.2.17

I just saw the following bug reported in Arch Linux repos:
with the title "[gnupg] 2.2.17 release is broken by design and breaks
It appears Arch's packages use Web of Trust for introducing new
developers by adding 3 signatures out of 5 (or 6) marginally trusted
Master Signing Keys: https://www.archlinux.org/master-keys/ and thus
they depend on these signatures to be there.
Quoting the bug report:
> By default, pacman itself will try to look up keys which it does not know about yet, and download them with the master key signatures in order to validate signed packages/repositories.
Would deploying WKD on archlinux.org and making signatures with --sender
preserve third-party-signatures that they depend on?
