Since the Apple Bluetooth keyboard uses the same rubber feet, but on the keyboard, the feet don't provide an active function, I decided to take the feet off the Bluetooth keyboard to use on the trackpad. It's much easier to find a suitable replacement for the rubber feet on the keyboard because you don't need an exact size, pretty much any thin rubber foot will work.
 
In my case, I just needed one rubber foot for the trackpad, so I took both feet off the bottom of the keyboard and now have a spare if needed sometime in the future. ITo replace the feet I took off the keyboard, I used some 3M tabs that wereare adhesive on one side and have a rubbery, non-skid coating on the other. It works great for me.

--Admittedly, it would be difficult to find the PERFECT height feet for the keyboard if you keep the keyboard and trackpad side by side. If I used them in a desktop environment and they didn't line up perfectly, it would drive me crazy, but...I don't, Idon't. I use both separately as peripheral devices for my media center (Mac Mini). They don't have to line up perfectly with each other because I'm usually in the bed when using either one.

If I HAD to make them line up, I'd start with some rubber feet that were as close as possible to the original height, but slightly taller, so I could carefully trim them down to the correct size. It wouldn't be the easiest thing to do, but I don't believe it would be too much of a pain in the rear either.
 
Anyway, there's my $0.02. Maybe it will help someone. Good Luck!
