If people prefer that, we could change the binding, I won't object.

But then we'll have no binding for `undo-redo`, just a menu item?

Or would you be fine with adding a binding for it too?

Why do we need a binding for it in the default configuration?  Not
every command available through the menus has a keybinding by default.

Existing user expectations, regarding undo-redo, coming from just about any other editor or software with text inputs (such as Firefox).

I'm pretty confident that any user that will use 'redo' from the menu will look for the binding for it.

Also: we do make an effort to create key bindings for commands that we anticipate will be used often. If the user uses 'redo' at all, they will do it frequently.

Additionally, the difference between 'undo' and 'undo-only' is likely to be surprising for such users.
