Actually (or its successor) is just a web page that
shows statistics about key servers. That should not public at all
so it would not attract any GDPR complaints.
If it is password protected for members only there is no headache. :-)
(Very few peoples will recognize its DNS related job.)

The GDPR problem is with SKS itself. That is a nightmare in this era.
A new architect is required. Key servers should store self signed and verified
keys only. Even more I think it should keep the strong set only.
