D3E decided that they won't define dead key names anymore. Instead, they should set Unicode combining character for .key value.

Summary: Drop all dead key names since the latest D3E WD dropped them → Drop all dead key names since the latest D3E WD dropped them and use "Dead" instead.
Current D3E spec defines that dead key's .key value should be "Dead" and web apps should get actual input Unicode character from compositionupdate's data attribute. Although, we don't support composition events for dead key input on Windows yet.
Ah, we already support dead key value on Windows.

Patch

The dead key spec is now simpler than older spec. That makes our implementation simper!
