Here's a stab at a clarified definition of a keyboard interface:

"Keyboard interface":  On devices that do not have a built in keyboard,
there is usually an alternate method for entering text and/or a method for
connecting a keyboard to the device.   Allowing control via the "keyboard
interface" means that the content could be controlled through commands
issued from the optional keyboard or other discrete input device, or by
alternate entry methods that are capable of generating text as if a keyboard
had been used.
