I am not aware of Mac applications which used function keys. No print  
screen or copy/paste as on Windows, this is all achieved via Cmd- 
something (or menu items and the mouse). With recent versions of Mac  
OS X, a fair number of function keys are used for setting the  
lightning and the volume, and several others are used for Exposé (the  
OS application which shows reduced versions of all windows) and  
Dashboard (the OS application which displays gadgets).

And there's also F7, which is used when giving a presentation to  
duplicate (or not) your screen on the video projector. I don't  
remember what's the name of this key.

So using function keys for applications would perturb in one way or  
another what the OS does.
