Windows doesn't need change, since it seems to use "hardware" key repeat.

Not sure what you mean by "differing time difference", but somehow it
should be under client control whether there is key repeat.
Hans gave a longer reply, but unfortunately, it was only addressed to

The interesting is that disabling x11 key repeat will not work with
only Down...Down events.. It will need Down/Up (press-release).
