Do we know for a fact that Kawai was the OEM source for Kronos's keybed? They're not actually styled/spelled the same: RH-3 vs. RHIII...

As far as I know, they're different actions from different manufacturers. Nothing to do with each other except similar names.

Not at all, as discussed previously it is most likely derived from the keybed of the MP7 (RH III while the VPC1 uses the RM3).

Right, and you wouldn't expect it to be the VPC action, as that model weighs 65 lbs with very little electronics in it. It is based on the Kawai RHIII. (And not the Korg RH3.)

My bad... Kawai likes to use very similar naming conventions
VPC1 = RM3II
Nord = RHIII
