I think I understand now, that you and Jürgen are talking about a keyboard whose keys are physically labelled different than a standard US QWERTY keyboard, and pressing CTRL+] on that keyboard does not send Vim a CTRL+] keystroke.
I am saying that I have a physical US QWERTY keyboard, and I've applied a US Dvorak keyboard layout, by going into Control Panel→Regional and Language Options→Languages→Details...
On my physical QWERTY keyboard mapped to Dvorak, I press CTRL and the key which in Dvorak yields a ], and Vim gets CTRL+] as I expect.
I think you're saying if I had a physical Dvorak keyboard with no software mapping, pressing CTRL and the key which yields a ], will NOT send Vim a CTRL+], but something else.
