Ah, then I don't understand what disturbs you. If you are not in a call,
using the dialpad will output the numbers in the url bar. If you are in
a call, they are sent as DTMFs instead.
What do you think is wrong with that behavior, or better, what do you
think the correct behavior should be?

Using the number keys produces the same behavior than when you press any key on the keyboard.
It will never be sent as a DTMF, it is just normal editing of the URL bar.
Using the keypad numbers is considered as dialing DTMFs, and is thus not classical URL bar editing.
I need to keep both approaches. Imagine you are in a call, and want to modify, for some reason,
the IP address in your URL bar. If you do not want to send DTMFs, you will use the keyboard.
Imagine you are in a call and need to enter a PIN to identify yourself to the system, you will
do this sending DTMFs, in that case, you will use the keypad.
If I associate both the keypad and the keyboard to the action of sending DTMFs, then you will be unable
to edit your URL entry during a call...
