This won't happen for WF2, but I've noted it for WF3.

<keygen> in general is not specified at all in WHATWG at the moment. I 
would be open to adding it but I have so far utterly failed to work out 
what it is supposed to do. If you'd like it in the specs, please send a 
detailed spec for it (including error handling) and if it is a good spec 
then I'll look into adding it at some point.
