The problem with customizing the whole keymap is that it should shake
the modifications out and store just the difference against the default
map.  Otherwise, any modifications of the defaults by the package
authors will not picked up.

Also we use the keymaps to store toolbar and menubar data, and we do
that in a precomputed manner.  That's not something we want to throw at
the user by default.
