Can MDP receive and respond to computer keyboard keystrokes?

No, and AFAIK StreamByter cannot either (nor MidiFire).

There are some external options like this https://www.bome.com/keystroke-to-midi but I think you'll find something for iOS out there.

On the other hand, at some point we'll implement, but NO idea about when. Thanks!
Bome seems a bit complicated and expensive. I am looking to control MDP buttons with hardware switches. Commercial matrix switch boxes generally output hotkey keystrokes. I might try to modify X-keys to add something like a Teensy to output midi when a switch is depressed.
