I can confirm that this change works in 2.6.24-19 with a UK Apple Wireless Keyboard.

Very similar issues are dealt with in /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.24/drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-quirks.c:

#define USB_DEVICE_ID_APPLE_ALU_WIRELESS_ANSI 0x022c
#define USB_DEVICE_ID_APPLE_ALU_WIRELESS_ISO 0x022d
#define USB_DEVICE_ID_APPLE_ALU_WIRELESS_JIS 0x022e

From this I gather that 0x022c (already working) is the US model - which would explain why you don't see many other people complaining!

But if we fix 0x022d for ourselves then we should also fix 0x022e for the Japanese.

net/bluetooth/hidp/core.c should probably use the symbols defined in hid-quirks.c. I don't know how these files relate though. Note also that the ISO keyboard has its own special quirk, HID_QUIRK_APPLE_ISO_KEYBOARD. I'm not sure what this affects.
