Maybe people don't do it, because it seems like a hastle? If one reads
gnu.emacs.help and notices the few threads on binding non-ASCII keys,
this is not very encouraging. (If I ask myself, why I don't do it,
then I'd probably say that I was too lazy yet to check for the best
way to do it.)

However, on my German keyboard I have three non-ascii keys on the
three main rows. Two of them are actually on the home row, i.e. those
keys are very easy to type. So it's actually a shame not to use them
for Emacs keybindings. This might be similar for other European
