Have you tried searching for the wayland-devel mailing list
archives for hotkeys/shortcuts?

I think there was a pretty decent plan, IIRC based on a conference
presentation on something about security and global hotkeys, where
clients register or subscribe to actions and compositors map global
keys to them or such. We just haven't heard from it on the list
