Next, Previous, Forward, Back.

I think Evgeny meant no physical symmetry.

Yes, exactly.

Keyboard arrows, Numpad arrows, PgUp/PgDn, Home/End, hjkl, jikl, wasd - all have some kind of physical symmetry.

There are even extreme cases like Truly Ergonomic Keyboard where block of arrows is fully symmetrical to block of PgUp PgDn Home End: http://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard_images/truly_ergonomic_computer_keyboard_209_large.jpg

I guess such symmetry is key to ergonomics.
