I'm precisely suggesting that instead of 0x044F, the keymap provides
0xdc4f, just like for +z the keysym is not K(KT_LATIN,0x0079), but
K(KT_LETTER,0x79) (that's the difference between just z and +z, i.e.
whether it's KT_LATIN or KT_LETTER, i.e. whether capslock acts on it or
not, that's the whole point of capslock vs shift lock!).

More precisely, in the kbd source code, in the add_capslock function, in
the unicode case, instead of ignoring the '+', add 0xD800 to the unicode
value if it is below 0x0800.

But again, that's a very limited fix and just fixing the LED interface
would allow to just use modifiers and permit much more powerful keymaps.
