yes (it's not as simple as that to use the bound-key).

P/p as mnemonic to page do not mean nothing for non-english speakers.

I agree that the key assignments should all be rebindable.

But LYK_PRINT already has a different meaning.

Implementing rebinding for the scattered places where they're not localized isn't likely to be just that simple.

btw, should we provide buttons with icons for this stuff ?

sounds like another prompt/message - I'm not sure what that would look like.
