I think this such a list of keys for the increasing variety of 
Web-connected devices is a reasonable idea.

I don't believe that this needs to be in the DOM3 Events 
specification... the list there is intended to be extended over time, as 
needs emerge.

I would suggest that this community discuss such a list of keys, and the 
results can be published a separate list of key value extensions for 
these specific devices, or can be published as part of the errata for 
DOM3 Events Second Edition.  I think that the first approach is cleaner, 
but either way works.
