I would suggest copying some of the functionality to there instead of
simply moving it. One place is no more appropriate than the other, but
both seem logical.

Alternatively, how about a link to the current configuration place in
Keyboard & Mouse/Keyboard? Windows mobile adds links from likely
related places in it's configuration screens, and it is a great help.
