I notice that the list of keyboard identifiers in
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html#keyset
now has multiple identifiers for certain keys.  For example, there are
three identifiers for the comma key: ",", "Comma" and "U+002C".

What is the purpose of having multiple identifiers for the one key?  I
think there should be only one.  If you do have multiple identifiers,
then you need one of them to be the “canonical” identifier that is
stored in KeyboardEvent.keyIdentifier.


Some other minor points:

  ▪ “are comprised of” should be “comprise”, in the definition of the
     “Unicode character categories” term.
  ▪ “Asterix” should be “Asterisk” in the key identifiers set section.
