It will, imho, but as a side effect: strings in PO-files will then be
the "English" ones and not the keymap codes.

Having the keymap codes leads to many translator errors where these
are "translated" to keymap codes, despite a special warning in the D-I
i18n doc AND comments in console-data POT file.

About separating with "comma space" that probably requires changes to
the package build system.....well, I'm not sure I'll touch this
