Keyboard Questions

All the Lion talk today got me thinking – what happens to the standard Mac keyboard when Exposé and Dashboard merge? Today’s keyboard has distinct buttons for Exposé and Dashboard, but the upcoming Mission Control merges those concepts. My guess is the Dashboard button will take you to the Dashboard Space, and the current “view all windows” button will go to Mission Control. I wouldn’t be surprised to see an upcoming change in the keyboard layout to more properly reflect the new interface. That said, it’s pretty obvious that Lion’s preferred input method is the trackpad swipe, not the keyboard. Maybe these keys will disappear entirely?
