For some reason I ignore, it appears to be sometimes not possible to
type in GUI (though I barely understand why it’s even possible to type
at all), and it is systematically impossible to type in terminal.

Look: Both (kbd "DEL") and "\C-?" display as "^?"  (if it pass our mail
softwares: ""), and contain only ?\C-? (127), which is usually
backspace (or is it sometimes different, as (kbd "<backspace>") returns
[backspace], which seems different?).

I believe this is an historic oddity of old terminal and/or keyboard,
related to how they implemented stuff.
