Ah, no. It's really different issue. I worry about implementing shortcut keys
on web application. The scancode doesn't help it because the alternative key
meaning cannot be resolved from physical keycode. For example, whether Ctrl+'ر'
is same as Ctrl+'v' or not when the user activates ASCII capable keyboard
layout.

Okay, I reopen this bug for requesting to add some examples for non-ASCII
capable keyboard layout.

So, I want you to add following examples to the D3E spec:

* What are the .key and .char values of Ctrl+'ر' with Arabic keyboard layout
* What are the .key and .char values of Ctrl+Shift+'ر' with Arabic keyboard
layout
