Sure, but would the import perhaps take a little less time, if it were
spared all the additional I/O ?

That issue tracker seems to require me to create an account in order
to file bug reports: this is, frankly speaking, unpractical (I cannot
create an upstream issue tracker account for each software package I
have to report bugs about...).
The Debian BTS is much more convenient, as it only requires a working
e-mail address.

Dear Debian GnuPG Maintainers, could you please forward my bug report
to the upstream issue tracker?
Thanks for your time and patience.

In the meantime, dear Werner, is there any additional information
I could provide to help you in pinpointing the bug?
Please let me know.
Thanks for your time and helpfulness.

 There's not a second to spare! To the laboratory!
