You keep repeating that, but it has never been in question.

We can perhaps agree to disagree about that, as well as
perhaps about the likely result of users, particularly
newbies, following that Org-doc recommendation.

Of course you are.  No one said anything to the contrary.

Please read what I wrote.  I did not say that your opinions
are unhelpful.

It is the practice that was the subject of bug #28263, and
that you seem to endorse, that I said users do not need and
is not helpful (for users, obviously).

The Org doc does not need to recommend that users bind
reserved user keys to Org commands, and doing so is (IMHO)
unhelpful to users.

Just one opinion, of course.
