I think 'proper' is important to consider, but personally I think 'predictable' is better for browsers. The input events spec [1] currently says that it should have 'left' gravity ('backward' coming soon) on click, and 'current side' gravity (if you're in an element, stay in it) on arrow keys, etc. This seems predictable to me and can be changed easily by script.
