Following up on this one. Suggestions from others incorporated, but I also realized that I renamed the definition “control key” but didn’t use that term in the SC.

See what you all think:

Success Criterion 2.4.11 Control Key Shortcuts
If a keyboard shortcut that does not include a control key is implemented by content, then a mechanism is available to turn it off or to remap it to a shortcut that can use at least one control key, unless the keyboard shortcut for a user interface component is only active when that component has focus.

Control key is defined as:
single non-printable Unicode code point or any keyboard character that is not printable, i.e. including alt, control, home, and end, and excluding printable characters including letters, punctuation, numbers, and symbols.
