I finally figured out that F5 (which here means pressing Fn-F5) was already set up OOTB as a toggle for the touchpad.
Sometimes a newer kernel gets those working when they did nothing before. Those are ACPI controlled, I'm pretty sure. The airplane mode hotkey combo on the MSI does nothing with the 4.15 kernel, but works fine with the 4.18. However, the touchpad on-off hotkey doesn't work with either, but is not necessary with touchpad-indicator working.
