See below the list of special keys you can specify in your amaya.keyboard file:

<Key>BackSpace
<Key>Escape
<Key>Delete
<Key>Space
<Key>Return
<Key>Up
<Key>Down
<Key>Left
<Key>Right
<Key>Home
<Key>End

The internal function for doing a backspace in this release is DeleteChar()
In next release the keyboard management will be better defined and explained.
