Then Emacs already provides this feature, right? If I don't like a
keybinding or command name I can modify/alias them. Furthermore, I can
do this only for a specific mode.

Emacs has a set of default keybindings which can be modified to suit
the taste of the user. Where is the issue here? (Some software that I
use will not let me redefine key bindings at all.)

Is the solution to distribute a version of emacs with no keybindings set? :)
