What I will never agree with is the notion that *START is a specific key.

That’s true *START is no specific key - it’s „just go to the top“ - not a specification of the first key or record number.

*LoVal and *HiVal I would agree should count as specific but I have not tested with them.

But only if it’s a single key field and the value of the key is exactly *LOVAL - and even then I would say, that this is not an equal key, because *LOVAL is a figurative constant that has different values for different data types.

If you say:

keyfield = *loval;
setll keyfield …

That would probably give an %equal() - because *LOVAL is „instantiated“ as a specific value in the key field.
