With the hyphen being in the presentation layer. OK, C-x is a valid 
w r?

"Keypresses that belong to a command sequence".
Thomas also marked it as a command. 'An emacs command'

<keycombo action="seq">
     <keycombo action="press">
       <keycap function="control">Ctrl</keycap>

from Thomas does look right (but very complicated :-)

    <keycap function="meta">M</keycap>

Also works with similar logic, except that I'd prefer them to be in a 
single wrapper element (hence my query on the content model, not as is,
but should it be extended).

Nitpicking, but I'd object to <keycap>revert-buffer</keycap>
since there is no such key?
