Ive not seen your keyboard. Yet am ready to bet that for your keyboard:
- There is a key whose 'label' looks like 'A'
- There is no key whose label looks like 'a'
- Yet when you type that key you get an 'a' not an 'A'
- That there is no way using your keyboard to get a 'a' with a single-keystroke

[Also I bet you've heard of an editor named after the chord-chars

You are already using an 'input-method' any-which-how already.
Inside emacs you are using probably hundreds of chords and chord-sequences that
are completely un-memonic – What the hell does C-x C-c have to do with 
And what about the 4-char-chord M-C-S-% for query-replace-regexp ?

We can use more sophisticated ones for richer charsets (if we wish)
