How else would they get so many functions onto a keyboard that size?

The 67 and 34C are the only machines with 3 different color shift keys (the 65 has 3 colored shift keys but 2 are the same color), and therefore the busiest keyboards, but there is no other way to cram that number of functions onto keyboards of those sizes.
