Much less convenient, really?  Do you find `C-n' as inconvenient as
`C-j', so you customize Emacs to replace `C-n' also?  `C-a'?  `C-e'?

Emacs does that too, with `C-j'.  Easily reached by most, I think.

But any user is free to bind some other key for this.  If one finds
`<f9>' or `<kp-enter>' (or even `RET') better, then it's easy enough
to substitute it.

Sorry, I'm with Richard on this one.  You seem to be viewing a local
mole hill (if even that) from a foreign vantage point and seeing a
mountain.  `C-j' is a good choice for Emacs, here.  Let's keep `RET'
for what it does and `C-j' for what it does.
