   traditionally in what environment?

In simple text editors that do not have emacs-like key bindings.  It's a
usage that comes from the editors of the eighties on DOS machines.

However, I'm not advocating standard bindings like these.  I mean that,
if one wants to write a package for newbies, or configure an Emacs for
newbies, they could choose bindings such as those.  It was just an
example of a possible natural usage of those keys.
