Roberto, I think you are right on the mark in that the interesting part is just 1194.21(b).

Does a Java applet necessarily have to honor Sticky Keys as set in the OS?

Jaws uses insert essentially as a modify key.  Is that likely to be compatible with a Java applet?

Java is an application enviroment, with its own rules (java, for default, hereditate only Java configuration like font, etc. And cannot hereditate OS configuration.
Like in ex-ISO 16071 (formely ISO 9241-171), these requirements involve software applications interfaces that can only be applied following OS accessibility or ISO standards (W3C don't define accessibility for software interfaces), like Section 508 paragraph that you cited.
