What about CAPS? moving to SUPER and HYPER would mean that user must
define these keys and that they will be in use only for Hebrew-Mode.  Is
there a way from within emacs to identify some key which is normally
bound to something else such as AltGr/AltR/CAPS and take over the
binding just in Hebrew mode?  If some of these are not present you can
always user the prefix method.

I'll let you know my findings - I'm a bit more sceptical...
