??  Where did you get this from?

If that was the case then the "conceptually correct way to" rebind the
Alt key would also be a separate program, or?

Beside that it would not solve the problem that Emacs on w32 does not
allow people which needs sticky keys to use it, i.e. it does not allow
access for some disabled people.

That is maybe how it is organized on GNU/Linux. That is not the way it
is organized on w32.

Might be interesting. Exactly what do you mean by "commonly respected"?
