I don't think this is right anymore. The 2011 (and later?) Macbook Air keyboard may be replaceable by removing about 50 tiny screws. Will let you know next week :-) See this: [guide|9427] and this: [https://www.l2order.com/ViewLarge.cfm?id=1093]
 
UPDATE: it's not so simple. There are about 40 screws and 50 rivets. Your mileage may vary, but I was able to remove all of the tiny screws and then slowly pop out the old rivets (by prying up the old keyboard -- which more-or-less destroys it -- but it was broken anyway). I was then able to screw in the new keyboard and firmly press each rivet back in place, one at a time, with the tips of a small pliers. I can't be sure they will hold but they seem to have seated well, and my hope is that the back-light assembly would at least prevent a couple of stray rivets from causing any trouble. Will update if they pop out in the future or I have any issues.
 
Anyone have any insights on that?

Update 2/14/2013: For what it's worth, the rivets have all held in place just fine for the past 5 months.
