  I had no expectations as to what they might be bound to. I
  surmised that it might be some historical issue. 
  Since these key combinations are so handy, one might be tempted to
  use them globally. That might mean that a subsequent utilization
  of a mode using them would get clobbered.

  Would not binding these key combinations to a mode violate the
  conventions as laid out here:

  Thanks. No big deal, just curious.
