I think the effort required to remember such bindings, coupled with the fact
that they'd only be used on relatively rare occasions, makes me think it's
a bad idea.
Especially since in all likely hood, after setting point in the middle of
a button, you're going to do something with the keyboard rather than with
the mouse, which makes me think that using the keyboard to move to that spot
would work just as well.
