I'm not sure what specific issues Hallvord has run into, but WebKit
implementing this property is blocked on us having a bit more confidence
that the key/char properties won't be changing. Specifically, I'd like to
see some rough resolution to the following threads:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2012OctDec/0010.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2012JulSep/0713.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2012JulSep/0103.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2012OctDec/0030.html

I'd be fine pushing the USB codes off to level 4, except it's not clear to
me that we'd want the key/char properties to stay as is if we added the USB
codes.
