I have no idea what you are talking about.  The idea of having several
sets of modifier keys is a long established design.  See this page for

You haven't stated any reason why you want to leave the Windows key
alone.  And, in particular, why you want everybody else to leave their
windows key alone?

Alt is being used by Emacs as meta.  (Not necessary, but pretty much
forced because Emacs doesn't provide any workable alternative.)  So
there is no way to "get rid of Alt-letter bindings".  I am not sure
you understand what this discussion is about.
