  I don't think the BIOS should say PNP0303 as a keyboard _CID.
Using _CID may help some systems, but it may not be helpful
for many systems having keyboard probe problem.
I think it's a specification bug made by Microsoft, 
same devices connected different type devices should not have
different ID but same ID.

  Yes, it's a invalid type, but reserved as a keyborad. 
I don't know why the BIOS builder puts PNP030B as a keyboard,
but it seems to be not a bug.

  People with this problem can override AML code,
but I don't think it is a bad idea adding other IDs to the list for probing.
