Keyboard support through UPnP

I'm wondering is i possible to add keyboard support to D-Series like this: create daemon which will be running in background and listening for events from USB keyboard. If user press some key daemon will take it and send to TV through UPnP (localhost) like all other Lan remote controls. There are no need to add support for all keys on keyboard. IMHO alphanumeric keys, arrows and enter will be enough for most of D-series users. Of course it will be greate to have possibility to define additional user actions assigned eg. to F1-F12 and other special keys eg
* F1->run some script
* F2->execute key sequence (eg to run youtube widget-> Home,Down,Down,left,left,enter) which mean: open SmartHub, move cursor down x2, move coursor left x2, execute widget.

If somebody is able to create such daemon, it will pe possible to use keyboard in SmartHub, web browser and most of third party widgets.

What do you think about it? Is it possible to create such thing? Or is it too good to be true?

Also concerning keyboard support for D series could it be possible to "copy" the extended wifi/bluetooth support that ES series have?
