I think you are right.  I was thinking the same thing this morning.

In a supposedly configurable editor, it is pretty hard to change key bindings. This seems like a deep flaw in the architecture of Emacs. Perhaps this is what the emacs developers should focus on: make the key bindings configurable. Then there would be no need to go through debates like this any more.
