There are really two separate issues.

One is that within WebCore itself we'd like to use the DOM keyboard event
objects. That may turn out to be straightforward, but it also may turn out that
there's information in the platform events that the DOM events don't contain.
So we might need to extend the DOM.

The key bindings issue is a separate one. That mechanism, part of OS X, is
based on NSEvent objects. So a PlatformKeyboardEvent is not good enough -- we
actually need an NSEvent. To fix that we'll need to create NSEvent objects for
events created by the DOM.

While similar, there are different types of fixes needed for each of these two
