Do you also consider the following as bad?  If a future version
actually has a useful command for `L', this can be removed.

I agree that the lower case binding are better, but the transition

My first reaction was that I really thought these feature won't work
anymore Emacs 23 because of the (partial) rewrite of Emacs' VC system.
