In my mind, Ken gained his Crest of Kindness sometime before the events of Millenniumon's defeat - it was given to him by the Agents as a means to fight evil. However the planting of the Seed within his neck led his Kaiser persona to never activate it, and instead he only ever ended up using it as a power source to fuel his base.
And since the forces of the Light were responsible for creating it, this is why the Four Holy Beasts knew how to transform it into a different item (the Digimental of Miracles) from afar to help bring about the Kaiser's downfall.
I really like this, with the exception of the part about the Digimental of Miracles. However, that's not your fault, but that of the show writers and how they handled it.
Namely, because it establishes a link between the crests and the digieggs, but kinda cops out of it at last minute. I wonder if that was ever on the drawing board for 02, though in retrospect perhaps it would have worked out better if 02 were the prequel to Adventure.
As to Ken never activating his crest, I'm more and more convinced that the creators took cues from "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", with Ken being our Edmund.
