Question keyboard.conf update

I peeked at the Kindle file system and noticed that /usr/share/keyboard also contains keyboard layouts and predictive text databases for Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Korean. I wanted to check out the keyboard layouts chosen by Amazon and updated /var/local/system/keyboard.conf and replaced the existing version with my version, which looks like this:

Code:
{
	"all":	[{
			"id":	"de",
			"name":	"German"
		}, {
			"id":	"en_GB",
			"name":	"English (United Kingdom)"
		}, {
			"id":	"en_US",
			"name":	"English (United States)"
		}, {
			"id":	"es",
			"name":	"Spanish"
		}, {
			"id":	"es_MX",
			"name":	"Spanish (Mexico)"
		}, {
			"id":	"fr",
			"name":	"French"
		}, {
			"id":	"fr_CA",
			"name":	"French (Canada)"
		}, {
			"id":	"it",
			"name":	"Italian"
		}, {
			"id":	"ja",
			"name":	"Japanese"
		}, {
			"id":	"pt_BR",
			"name":	"Portuguese (Brazil)"
		}, {
			"id":	"zh_CN",
			"name":	"Chinese (Simplified)"
		}, {
			"id":	"da",
			"name":	"Danish (Denmark)"
		}, {
			"id":	"no",
			"name":	"Norwegian Bokmål (Norway)"
		}, {
			"id":	"sv",
			"name":	"Swedish (Sweden)"
		}, {
			"id":	"nl",
			"name":	"Dutch (Netherlands)"
		}, {
			"id":	"ko",
			"name":	"Korean (South Korea)"
		}],
	"selected":	"zh_CN:en_GB:en_US:fr:de:es:ja:ko:da:no:sv:nl",
	"current":	"de"
}
However, it appears that the Kindle overwrote my file when I selected the Search icon from the home screen. Is there another file that I need to update as well or are the keyboard languages hard-coded?

The inclusion of the fields "selected" and "current" makes me think this is a generated file.

If so, then that information is stored somewhere else (maybe even hard coded somewhere).

Next step: Where?
(Just what you asked. )
