You may be onto something, as the documentation (cough, cough) has this:

"As the type command is designed to emulate exactly what happens when a 
user types a key on the keyboard, the rawKeyDown, keyDown, rawKeyUp and 
keyUp messages are sent by the command. If these messages are blocked, 
the text will not appear in the selected field."

Now, if the keyDown, keyUP and rawKeyDown messages could be blocked, 
'type' might yield whatever character
the end-user's keyboard has specified for a particular physical key.

The ONLY problem is that I cannot find out how one might BLOCK those
