I got it... The perfect mapping... Referencing the CoCo 2:

Left Arrow replaces Clear

Right Arrow replaces Up Arrow

Clear replaces Left Arrow

ALT replaces Right Arrow

CTRL replaces Down Arrow

Up Arrow replaces ALT

Down Arrow replaces CTRL

Then it looks very closely like the CoCo 2 keyboard, with the ALT and 
CTRL keys to the far right.

I think that the CoCo 3 keyboard was thought up by someone who was into 
spreadsheets back then.
