                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I would say "cancel some @kbd{C-s} commands", not "characters".
"Cancel characters" sounds awkward and slightly confusing.

It is not useful to have several index entries starting with the same
string and pointing to the same place, or very close places.  In this
