Is it an unshielded cable? If it's shielded maybe they're using the
shield as a 16th line...

Maybe I'll trace out the keyboard schematic (or at least as much as I
need) - it's just occurred to me that maybe the keyboard was shipped as
a completed unit (with the handful of ICs in place) which is why
schematics for it seem to be lacking...
