Two things:
 1) It is not just to print the circuit board even if you had the shematics.
When you have transmission lines, you also need to tweak by moving the
components, measure, move some more, measure again...and there are many
other things too.
 2) Nobody wants to reroute just to add a keypad. You can just connect it on
usb or some other available bus.

Of course, this is just my assumptions
