We’re facing the same challenge: we can’t add more connectors to the keyboard (or the Next board wouldn’t be compatible with the original Speccy keyboard), thus three layers it is, just like the Plus and 128.
Actually, you CAN, and the connector can still be compatible with existing 8+5 keyboard connectors! Hint: look at the +2A/+3. It turns that you can plug a rubber key membrane into the two keyboard connectors in a +2A/+3. Well... sort of.... you would have to turn one (or maybe both) connectors so metal contacts are on the appropiate side. Just look at how the +3 keyboard matrix is arranged:
