I read it as meaning that the arrow keys does not always move
visually. (I.e. right arrow keys could move to the left.)

Are you saying that the right arrow key etc will always move visually
to the right? In that case it is good.

Or are you saying that <right> key in Emacs now always does not mean
the right arrow key? That seems bad in my opinion.
