So let me put this another way...
Is there a reference somewhere that details the events for all controls and a description on what they're intended to handle? Having this would avoid me asking equally mundane questions in the future.

This information is available in components' documentation, check TLD files.
Hmmm, well this would seem to be a jsf selectOneMenu issue? I find no message capable of performing this properly. Certainly this has to be possible.
There should be onkeyup/onkeydown events, aren't they there?
My testing finds that they have no affect. Besides, (after considering what I was testing) I'm not after the keyup/down events anyway, I want the "arrow up and arrow down selected" events if I were to do this logically.which obviously isn't an option... it would seem that it should be built into the onchange event since it's clear that the control is reacting to it.
Wow, that was a real long winded explanation I gave in why it wouldn't fit my needs, when in fact it did.
For some reason my original test harness was giving false negatives and I could't see the effects of using both onchange and onkeyup.
Now not only can I reRender based on the arrow key change events, but also in the case that an item in the list was selected via an alpha selection from the keyboard. Pretty much exactly what I was after.
