When IME is involved Gecko dispatches keydown, keypress,
compositionstart, text+, compositionend, keyup.

D3E has compositionstart, compositionupdate (which is a lot better name 
than 'text') and compositionend.

In Gecko IME doesn't really make key event handling more complicated, 
though the default handling is a bit different with keypress.
(I should re-test default handling with IME.)
