But that is exactly what HTML's KBD means.  Quotation from the 

KBD: Indicates text to be entered by the user.

There is, in my mind, a one-to-one correspondence between userinput and 
KBD.  So when the browser designers chose the rendering KBD, they 
specifically (albeit possibly sloppily) chose the rendering for exactly 
"stuff you need to type in".  Whatever they chose should be the 
rendering for userinput.
