ISSUE-4: Vendor specific preferences keys

Vendor specific preferences keys

IndieUI: User Context (Future Release)
Raised by:
Lachlan Hunt
Opened on:
Suggested vendor-specific keys for 1) proposed keys for standardization, and 2) truly unique keys that would not apply to other vendors (such as Safari's "focus all controls" setting)… This is a pretty standard way of proposing new features, and allows vendors to innovate w/o be hindered by the deliberative standardization process.

Lachlan objected to this vendor-specific keys, but we need more complete description of objections from him.

Pushing to Future Release pending closure since Lachlan is no longer in the group.

Actually these are simple strings now rather than a separate taxonomy or vendor prefix string, so I don't think there is any reason to keep this open.
