Why not?  That would be a tremendous help to people who want to
customize their virtual keyboard layouts.  Or add support for languages
that are not supported out of the box.

Given that the .vkb file format is documented, the XML file format is
documented, and the utility to compile XMLs into VKB is available, it is
possible to decompile the .vkb files distributed in the OS image into
XML sources, and verify that the sources can be compiled back into the
same .vkb files.

That might violate the licence under which the OS images are
distributed.  IIRC it said something about reverse engineering.
