Scan Code for Japanese Keys

If you have ever installed an English operating system on a computer with Japanese keyboard, you'd find five extra keys that aren't mapped to anything. The diagram attached below shows those extra keys in yellow. With some extra software you can map those keys to do some useful tasks. But you'll need to know their scan code first. Below are the keys and their scan codes. The scan code are hex values.

The key to the left of "Back Space"
Scancode: 07D (F14)

The key to the left of "Right Shift"
Scancode: 073

Non-conversion (無変換)
Scancode: 07B

Conversion (変換)
Scancode: 079

Katakana/Hiragana/romanization (カタカナ/ひらがな/ローマ字)
Scancode: 070

I have a few ideas of what to map these keys to. But I'd like to hear yours. Post them and we'll trade ideas. :-)
