I use M-f, M-b, M-z, M-m, M-y, M-a, M-e, M-k, M-v, and M-i, in
addition to those you mentioned.  (Funny, I didn't realize how many
of these I use until making this list just now.)

I think most or all of these are too central to editing, for us to be
able to usurp them and tell users to relearn.  Massive changes in the
docs (tutorial and the manual, for starters) is also not something I
look forward for.

I understand and support the need for presenting a familiar UI, but I
think in this case, the price is too high.  The S-M-* suggestion sounds
much better on balance, IMHO.
