Good tip!
I take them out because I like to make images of the cards, but I'll keep this method in mind for the next backup!

It might be within the realm of possibility to make a second set of bottom mold halves (with Cherry fittings) for the keycaps.
The thing is, the keyboard is fine, I like the mitsumi mechanism and all. But it's the membrane that is absolute shit. I am sure producing the membrane is cheaper than producing a whole keyboard.

Sure, a keyboard with Cherry switches would be fancy and swank, but I don't want to spend so much money on a keyboard.
