multiple keylocks is the way to go in the future, though a little different than what you suggest. But before working on multiple keylock support, I

Could you describe what multiple keylocks are, this is not clear to
me. Moreover, can you describe what the behaviour/functionality would
be (before submitting code) ?

Multiple keylocks could mean that multiple keylocks are connected to your system. The "closedness" of the system could then be determined by the keylock that is "the most closed". Probably some sort of policy would be needed.

Maybe two people have a key to a system (different keys). Only if both of them put their keys in and turn the lock to their destined position, a system is open.
