It's the concept that counts, and none of the merit is taken away

No of course not.  But the name shortcuts is misleading, a bit ugly,
and annoying for Emacs veterans (because it drops a familar term for
something that's not particularly nice); morever it hasn't been shown

It is the sum of all newbie unfriendliness that counts. At least for the newbie.
