No one mentioned a bug, or even an "issue".

I mentioned `substitute-key-definition' and command remapping as a use case.

I did not say that this is a big deal.  I said I was curious why we need to now
change these longstanding default key bindings.  That's all.  Still no answer,
but if no one else cares then it's OK that I not understand.
