This more or less just means "you can't release a player until you have
every key assigned, or are willing to leave any spare keys as unused
forever." It's just not a good policy.
You can maintain your personal behaviour of using a key to light the
screen by getting used to "first keypress turns on backlight" and simply
double tapping volume for the first step, or by compiling a custom build
with the change reverted. Meanwhile, you've already admitted you never
use on-player playlisting. It's possible you'd use it more if it became
significantly easier. It's also possible that's not why you chose
Rockbox at all. But it is a feature we list as being one of the gains of
Rockbox, and honestly "turning on the backlight" is hard to justify as
"giving the user more functionality" than a single-button insert. Just
because you like it more doesn't mean it _does_ more.
