Yes, and as I said it would be even more nice to have a special syntax/
command in texinfo to specify keysequences, so they can be 
programmatically all be changed very easily, in case the user rebinds 
them, so not only emacs’ C-h is updated, but the info manual as well (and 
that could be useful as well for any software whose keys can and commonly 
are rebound)

So it would not only be useful to substitute a - with a +, but also whole 
key prefixes or keysequences with others
