That would be a problem for me, at least; for example, I have come to
expect - not entirely unreasonably, I think - different key bindings in
different contexts.  To name the first example that comes to mind,
RETURN when editing a text file is very different from RETURN when
editing a command line.

Still, though, my other remarks apply: it's certainly possible my
expectations are wrong - build a preliminary implementation and let's
take it out for a spin around the block.
