We already do rhythm on keys when the song warrants it, but it's not a substitute for pro keys. People who want to play pro keys are not looking for a 5-lane guitar substitute. ;)

ok, the song must have something to tell players that the keys are for rhythm guitar?

You don't have to unless a song already contains keys and you plan on making an alt version with rhythm guitar to keys. Then the best thing that can be done about it is to add "(Rhythm Version)" or "(Rhythm on Keys)" to the song title.

Or you rely on the tools provided to you. Magma C3 allows you to mark the song and it adjusts the name accordingly. Don't reinvent the wheel.

Actually, we don't release songs with rhythm guitar on keys without a title tag, the reasoning being that if somebody downloads a song that has keys they expect them to be keys. Obviously this does not apply to independent authors but I suggest to always release a "normal version" with no keys and a Rhythm Version with guitar on keys.
