Just given the topic at hand, I will bring up Z-Board. It was a keyboard that had a "skin" of weys that could be changed in about 10-15 seconds. (Tri-fold with a latch/lock) It was meant for gaming, but the idea seems to be what you are after?

This goes in the right direction, although it is still limited to the layouts provided by the manufacturer (and I could not find different country layouts), and it still requires changing some hardware parts whenever I change the layouts. The same I could achieve by just plugging a different keyboard. But it would be much nicer to have the keyboard appearance changed by software as soon as the layout is changed.

I also found this, but I could not find much on the status of the project:
