The key is correct
In the IEC "conventions" 15 amp wires and receptacles are supposed to have the "key" at the top. You can plug in a 14 gauge (15 amp) cord into a lower amperage receptacle (safe) but not a smaller gauge cord (10 amp) into a device requiring 15 amps (not safe). Smart idea. The IEC even "de-rates" the cords for length, requiring heavier gauge wire in longer cords. Just might prevent a fire...
