Yes. It currently also falls back to encoding the Qt keycode as U+<keycode>.

Well, we almost already have that in the key property.

> For private applications we could do change it to use "key" attribute rather than "keyCode", but some interactive tv apps(HbbTV/CEHTML apps) refers "keyCode" property to handle the event. I don't think it is possible to change the HbbTV/CEHTML spec to use "key" :( Sorry incase I misinterpreted your comments.

Right, but in those cases we should expand our translation table of keycodes so it matches what those applications expect.
