On non-English keyboards, the right Alt key is called AltGr and returns

So maybe the answer is that Left-Control+Left-Alt and
Right-Control+Right-Alt should each be interpreted as Control+Alt.
Someone deliberately trying to enter Control+Alt+some-other-key is not
likely to use different hands for Control and Alt.
I assume you have a German keyboard and could test whether my suggestion
is consistent with the behavior of linux and xterm.
