I do not really understand for what this protocol is useful, trying to map
a virtual keyboard to a physical keyboard seems to be extremely limiting
and I do not see really use-cases for it. If you want to be able to send
non-text from a virtual keyboard to an application it makes more sense to
have some protocol to send keysyms for example.
