Also, there are several setting for your keyboard in the capplet (Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro, Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro (alternate option) and Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro (alternate option2)).

I changed my device type in my XF86Config-4 file to logicordless, and
I've permuted through all of the "Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro" options
and I've found that "Logitech Cordless Desktop Pro (alternate option2)"
works!  Which is great, but I'm still somewhat bothered that if I select
one of the other options, my keyboard stops working entirely.

Anyway, it appears to be fixed at the moment, but I'm still concerned
that others in the same situation could end up with a non-functional
setup when they believe they're doing the right thing.

Why are there three options for this keyboard anyway?

I'm including my final XF86Config-4 file as well as a dump from lsusb in
hopes that maybe a correlation can be made between the options presented
and the USB model/id number of the device.
