That depends on key distribution scheme - you can distribute only new keys
and store old keys on nginx server only.
But with your patch you should also rotate "default" key in nginx config
and it complicates the logic (in my schema) a bit.
Anyway - I'm not sure if keyname is meaningful parameter in periodic key
rotation scheme. For me - it is not.
