To me it makes most sense to have the decision taken per each input
device - if it is capable of providing KEY_SYSRQ, then it is used,
otherwise the alternative is taken.

The question is how to provide this information at ->connect() time.

Ideally chromebook's keyboard should be modelled in such a way that
it reflects reality. And the reality is that chromebooks probably
declare they use full AT PS/2 keyboard even though they have less keys.

It is unclear to me whether it makes sense to struggle to better
reflect actual keys repertoire at the kernel level. If udev's keymap
can be used, that should do. Now, are we able to guarantee that the
modification of the keyboard layout happens before the sysrq handler
is matched against the keyboard?
