Hi, Hallvord-

The testing we did on this issue was inconsistent between different 
implementations in combination with different IMEs.  So, we did add a 
note mentioning possible key suppression.

 
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html#key-IME-suppress

Please let us know if this satisfies your issue.

Regards-
-Doug
