since we're voting again,
i strongly support having a default to help Joe User,
who every so often turns on at lynx-dev with the FAQ KD just answered.
as for what it should be, my vote is  ^xe  for Klaus' reasons:
to me,  ^u  is the natural key for ERASE_THE_CURRENT_INPUT,
so dispensing with the duplicate should do no harm & is good in itself.
