I am not sure that this is a clincher argument.  The "common
standards" apply equally to the windows-key, which you are proposing
to give up.

The point is that one has to use one kind of modifier keys (either the
alt-keys or windows-keys) for the Emacs meta-key.  It would be good to
provide the users with a choice in this regard.
