I'd prefer to fix a Beeb rather than cannibalise it!
Of course, but sometimes these [edit: Beeb keyboards] do end up on ebay, and they go for anywhere between £5 and £30.

any idea on where to get keycaps with non-PC labels on them, for Atom or System?
You could try Mark@retroclinic he's definitely got Beeb key-caps

There are companies that will manufacture key caps with customer specified legends. But they are not cheap.

I think the reference to eBay is relating to some sellers that sell parts of Beebs instead of whole machines. So keyboard assemblies can sometimes be found being sold on their own.
