AltGr is supposed to be equivalent to Alt + ctrl.
At present, when we press e.g. AltGr + E while writing text, we check if any command can handle it and if yes it is not passed to application to handle key event. That’s why existing commands are triggered on those extended char shortcuts.
If we want to change the behavior that while writing text key shortcuts (e.g. AltGr + E) should write extended character, Then we will have to sacrifice all the text contextual shortcuts we have at present in app e.g. ctrl + alt + I does something. All those commands would stop working.
This is the reason why we are moving it to the feature

Yeah I suffered for years with this problem. ¿Did you know in spanish we use question and exclamation marks to OPEN and close sentences? ¡That's a lot of copy and paste!
Then I bought a new notebook and issue was gone even with the same logitech wireless keyboard. The only obvious difference between the two computers is that the first had Windows 10 single language locked in portuguese.
So it maybe has to do with that windows localization. The "Allow each app window to have different input language" or something like that worked fine, although still intermitent problems.
Nevertheless, this is also an ILLUSTRATOR issue. How, otherwise, would you explain that Photoshop, After Effects and Indesign never had this problem?
