>  I'm fully supportive of browsers having a way for people to redefine the keys to something they prefer (w a s d for example), but these may required adding a modifier to not interfere with input inside the spatial navigation container.

[`window.navigate()`](https://www.w3.org/TR/css-nav-1/#dom-window-navigate)  in the spec provides to alter the keys for moving the focus.

When you use this, you can control the focus with `w` `a` `s` `d` keys.
You can check how it works here: https://wicg.github.io/spatial-navigation/demo/sample/api_navigate.html

Thank you for suggesting more detailed language in the specification.
I think putting this modification in the [`window.navigate()`] seems nice.
