The problem with keyCode/charCode is that they are platform specific, there is
no "correct" value -- you really are much better off using the DOM3
keyIdentifier property.

That said, yes we do intend to get the two platforms as close as is technically
possible, but the fact that keyCode/keyDown is platform (possibly even
hardware) specific means that there is no guarantee that it will ever be
possible to make the two match exactly.
