I don't think lower contact resistance would be a problem (and if it
is, why not put a resistor in series with each contact?).
But if it's a velocity sensitive keyboard, I think it's difficult to
achieve the same travel of the contact, and the velocity response could
change dramatically.
And if it is not a velocity sensitive keyboard, is it worth repairing it
at all? ;->
