We ran out of modifier constants :)
Sorry, I didn't take the time to read through the bug reports, but
a normal French keyboard really have right command, and an Alt-Gr
Because that would be the only constellation that really requires the
new modifier.
It replaces the Alt key. Maybe the difference is only cultural, but I
don't see Alt and AltGr as being the same key. In any other OS, Alt+E
won't get you the Euro sign (and same for all the AltGr symbols on the
french keyboard). In Mail for example, Alt+E is "Attach File".

Sure, but that's exactly how Alt-Gr is handled on any other keyboard I know. It's a special key that replaced the right Alt key. So where exactly is the problem of the French keymap? Why can't it just map the Alt-Gr and the right Win key to the same key as for example the German or US-International keyboards do?
