I find this odd as well.

   Obviously your logic is valid too. It's just that computer users
   tend to navigate visually on the screen-buffer. Machines, such as
   Emacs Lisp code, navigates on file-buffer (usually).

There are alot of statements to the effect that new users will find
line-move-visual more intuitive, and some new users have stated that
they do find it more intuitive, likewise some old time users have
stated the opposite.  But has anyone actually done a poll on it or
anything similar to that?

I really think that this change should wait to after 23, and 23 should
leave line-move-visual as nil.
