Can you point to other situations, familiar to Emacs users, where a similar
formulation of whitespace occurs?  Contrast that with the nearly countless
context in which whitespace is a lexical pattern.

And in Emacs especially, when would I grep for the source of a binding
after having it displayed by Emacs.  My immediate response would be
"C-h k".

Finally, I will point out that you are retracting current keydef functionality.
