Have you taken a look at the UI Events (formerly DOM4 Events) spec:
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/d4e/raw-file/tip/source_respec.htm

We initially proposed using something like USB scancodes to the Keyboard
events, and that has evolved into the above spec.  For context, see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/2012JulSep/0103.html and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2012OctDec/0623.html

Looking forward to any comments you may have,
-Gary
