|Says YOU. Perhaps you haven't heard about the sacred confusimians?
Anyways, I suspect it is what most of us think, that when they were working back in DIRT or what they came up with a device that you'd need to get to open doors. It didn't have a name, but was called the key because that's what it did: unlocked doors.
In turn, when they came to the point of Uru, the name stuck, but to make it "canon-friendly" because the D'ni didn't speak english, they called it the KI (so it was still called the 'key' as a sort of reference) but explained it away by the similarity of such to the D'ni number three, so that the IC story is that it was named after the number. Not the OOC reason that it was called a key, and they later used the similarity to the number as an excuse.
You know, I wish we would learn Atrus loved the 1812 overture, and in turn we had a copy for our relto.
That's right, a canon canen cannon!
