Is the Enter key part of the keyboard interface? Yes.

If a faked button reacts when the user hits Enter, and Enter is part of
the keyboard interface, does that mean that the faked button is operable
through keyboard interface? Yes.

There is no normative requirement about "operating like a *real*" this
or the other in the SC.
