Furthermore, some cRemote implementations have incorrectly omitted the
kRepeat flag from repeat events in the past. As far as I remember, the
latest report of this on this list was not resolved. It was with some
RF remote control unit, as far as I remember. To be exact, it was in
the kernel input event driver in that case, but there have been bugs in
user-space drivers as well.
Users of such RCUs could accidentally send "power, power" with a single
press of the button.

I hope you will find some logical solution. And I'm sure someone will
complain, no matter what you come up with. :-)
