I think we should translate these to editing command name; e.g. Delete,
DeleteForward, etc... In WebKit at least, home, end, etc... are also translated
to editing commands internally.

Once we add beforeeditingaction and editingaction events (or extend
beforeinput/input events), then authors can intercept those commands instead of
adding specific key bindings by menu/command/etc...
