Both JIS keyboard layout for PC and Mac has "Eisu" (英数) key.

However, they are really different keys.

For PC, the key is shared with CapsLock key physically (Shift + Eisu is
CapsLock, typically). And there is no common use of this key. What happens with
the key press depends on IME. It seems that "Alphanumeric" modifier key is good
for this.

On the other hand, the function of the key for Mac's JIS keyboard is clear. It
turns off (closes) IME. However, there is no key names for such function key.

So, should we use "Alphanumeric" key for it too? Or need to define new key
