it boils down to how much trust you have in the install media.
One school of thought is compromised media is going to be game over in
many ways, other than just keys. While others consider keys to be
yet-another barrier.

Keys are also published at the CentOS Mirrors, and the installer iso
sum's published in the release notes. Both of these resources should be
spread enough that using multiple sources, should help increase
confidence levels.
