My point was to ask you why the following comment is not sufficient:

# The following variables describe your keyboard and can have the same #
values as the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant and XkbOptions options # in

According to it you can simply copy your customized layout from
xorg.conf to /etc/default/keyboard so (at least this was my intention)  no
additional reading of documentation is required.
