No, this is unrelated. The term translator handles input stream of
characters. It would be useful to get the scancode directly and do mapping
in the translator.

What you mean should probably be handled by a device similar to framebuffer
device in Linux. The GGI people have some ideas here, I am sure, and i think
they are interested in contributing a translator. Maybe this translator
could do text mode as well.
