In the same spirit of having key repeat on the client side, I think
that slow, bounce and sticky keys should also be implemented by the
clients. Doing these on the compositor would in particular make things
more complex for xwayland which (I assume) should continue to provide
these features for X clients while being a regular wl_keyboard client

MouseKeys though, seems like it can be implemented in the wayland
compositor and we should probably remove the functionality from
xwayland. Hover-to-click can be done in the compositor as well.
