I think he was joking.

Anyway, I don't think this should be moved from the C-c prefix since
the functionality is associated basically with comint-related buffers,
those having an associated user-visible shell process, but not
restricted to them.

For example, AUCTeX uses C-c C-k too in order to kill an associated
process, even though this process is run in a different buffer.

I don't think that the functionality "kill any process associated with
_this_ buffer" should have a keybinding, in contrast.  The relation of
such a process with regard to the user interface is more than unclear.

I'd strongly recommend C-c C-k as a binding to major mode authors to
stop a process run on behalf of the major mode _if_ there is a good
case for such a killing, and regardless of whether this process is run
in a different buffer or not (for example, for the purpose of
capturing output).

But I don't think there is a useful global binding in it for this.
