I know that the private key needs to be secured but with an ssh key
exchange connection the partner needs your public key in their
authorized_keys file and the partner's RSA fingerprint needs to be in your
known_hosts file.

Yes but the entry in authorized_keys is usually not further restricted.
You can restrict there to certain commands and source IP addresses, though.

The fingerprint just prevents tampering if the remote system pretends to
be someone else. If a possible attacker got hold of the privkey, he needs
just to connect, accept the host fingerprint.

Given that probably any system is breakable the ssh key exchange offers
a pretty good solution.

Yes, it does, most preferably to passwords. I'm just pointing out that
even with keys is a chance to have a system becoming compromised.
