Is there a reason that help-for-help is page-scrollable with
Space/Backspace and C-v/M-v but not PageUp/PageDown, and
line-scrollable with the mouse wheel but not Up/Down arrow keys? A
newcomer will try those and be surprised by the help buffer silently

Shift+Space should probably also act as “scroll a page back” on
terminals where this key is distinguishable.

Adding PgUp/PgDown and S-SPC support sound like particularly good improvements to me as well.
