Sure, and there are locks for which blanks are not available. I ran
into that with a bit of Mitsubishi gear--I had a loaned key and went
around town trying to get a duplicate for myself. Initially, the
reaction was "sure, no problem" and then the oddball key dimensions sunk
in. I ended up removing the lock--it was simply easiest.
But it sounds as if these XX2247 keys aren't particularly rare, nor are
they beyond the possibility of duplication.
