Starting an index entry with "user" is not a good idea, as it's too
general a word.  I added "reserved key bindings" instead.

I disagree with Drew.  By that logic, no one can ever say anything
about binding these keys, and they must always remain unbound, which
of course would defeat the reason for reserving them.
