Not exactly an answer, but maybe a solution. AFAIK, the keys you mention are modifier keys which are intended to modify the effect of another (non-modifier) key being pressed simultaneously. I'm not very well versed in hardware, but I believe some of the modifier processing may actually occur in the keyboard hardware or in the drivers - so they're not ...
