            Bug ID: 23906
           Summary: [proposal] Add (Mouse|Keyboard)Event.accelKey
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

It might be that this should be discussed as a proposal of UI Events, though.
However, I think this is very useful for web applications which implement their
own shortcut keys.

Proper modifier key which should be used for shortcut key depends on platforms
or user settings on UNIX like OS. Especially, it's impossible web apps to know
proper modifier key(s) for shortcut key on UNIX like OS (I guess that most
users of Linux expects ctrlKey, but somebody especially who uses Sun keyboard
or Mac keyboard might expect metaKey).

accelKey should be true if modifier key which is expected as shortcut modifier
key by the user. E.g., it's alias of ctrlKey on Windows, it's alias of metaKey
on Mac.

If this is defined by D3E, web apps don't need to check platforms and guess
proper modifier key for shortcut themselves.
