Actually, that's not quite the right answer Pafkata. I hadn't given the down arrow a thought since it's been there for a long time, but it's in fact from a German keyboard I once saw and simply means Caps Lock. I found it prettier than the text label (particularly on that row), so I adopted that custom.
However, you're partially right because I seem to remember that I thought the arrow symbol was less bastant and therefore obfuscates the use of that key a bit so different users could do what they want with it. Some people use it for Backspace too you know. ;)
Once again, I get the feeling that I've surfed way too many keyboard-related pages...
