Well yes, implicitly you did. If a random website can figure out where keys are on your keyboard (i.e. what layout you are using) it is an extra data point for fingerprinting / tracking users. So Björn has a good point: for privacy reasons, access to this API should probably be limited to sites/apps that are trusted or privileged in some way.
