I'm fairly sure that X3.64 specifies interpretation of escape/control
sequences on output and has nothing whatever to do with converting
keystrokes into anything else on input - with the arguable exception of
the KAM mode for SM/RM sequences, which has nothing to do with the
subject at hand (it corresponds to a "keyboard locked" state).

That's certainly what I remember from when I read it, though that was
admittedly quite some time ago; the file of notes I took at the time
agrees with my memory.
