Hear, hear!

Keybindings are (a) not a grave problem, since people can easily 
customize around them; and (b) changing them introduces inconsistencies, 
because at least the documentation which lists those keybindings needs to 
be reviewed and amended.  Changes in keybindings for major modes, such as 
emacs-lisp, are even worse, because everybody is using them.
