The be-latin1 variant just lacks some keys that are listed on the
keyboard. In fact, be2-latin1 is a very simple keymap. Without the
comments, this is be2-latin1:

include "be-latin1.kmap"

        altgr keycode 7 = asciicircum
keycode  41 = twosuperior  threesuperior
keycode  43 = mu  sterling  dead_grave
        alt keycode 43 = Meta_grave

... and That's all, folks!

Yes. And the be2-latin1 keymap is the only correct keymap, as entering
the ` character, for example, is plainly /impossible/ with be-latin1.
