If there is going to be an entire suite of commands for doing visual
motion, then it makes sense to have a uniform setting of key bindings
for them.  Key bindings can always be changed by the users (famous
last words!).  

The issue with C-n has been that the meaning of the command was
changed, not just a key binding.  It would have been less of an issue
if it was just a key binding.
