[Bug 9919] samp and kbd are practically unused and just clutter the language. They should be removed, like acronym, and code should be broadened to include their semantics (or maybe tt should be re-permitted and defined in the fashion of b and i).

That was a bold statement.  Do you have frequency data you could share?

Note that KBD means "user input", and user input is a different thing than the
result of it.  Example: Pressing <KBD >Ctrl <KBD >C</KBD ></KBD > does not
produce any result (<TT ></TT >).
