I believe you could achieve the same effect using a combination of
triggerhappy and the aforementioned rfkill, and I don’t like the idea
of having a special daemon running to handle a subset of the special
keys when there’s a more general solution to the problem already in the

That said, urfkill might have advantages I don’t see.
