Well, if I didn't know what the keys did, I certainly would
look under 'k' for 'key' in the manual, and been prepared to 
follow any lead that looked anything like 'key bindings' or
'kep mappings'. So the fact that I view them as key bindings
is entirely related to where I'd hope to find documentation 
of them in the manual.
