Just a question: Why do you want to avoid writing Kc to the EEPROM ? The
cards I know have a quite huge number of EPPROM write cycles, e.g. for a
certain MULTOS card the number is specified to be 500.000. I don't know
the number for the card you use, but I expect it to be at least 100.000.
For our purpose this should be really good enough, I would expect more
writes to EF LOCI and EF BCCH than to EF KC.

A question to the list: does anyone know where to get a tool to
cut out a SIM from a standard smart card ? I don't prefer doing this
with a knife or similar, this might only be OK for one or two pieces
and the result also does not look too good.

Best regards,
  Dieter
