The idea is you have a staging key (next key) and you generate that, and sync it out. Once it is synced out you can rotate to it as needed. All keys on the server are valid for token validation. Only the "active" key is used for a given keystone to issue a token.
Lance has some ansible stuff he put together for syncing the keys: https://github.com/lbragstad/revolver

Keystone should probably provide some guidance around this process, but I don't think it should deal with the actual syncing. I think that's better left to an installation's existing configuration management tools.
