Pressure sensitive keyboard for repeat rate

Would it be helpful to have a pressure sensitive keyboard where the pressure determines the repeat rate (harder=faster, etc)? It seems that it would be especially useful for navigation keys (arrow, page up/down) and keys commonly repeated (enter, backspace, delete, space, tab). Does such a thing exist? Was it tried and how well did it work?
