I fully agree with the concept, but IMHO F6 is wasted,
F8 will accomplish the same function.

If you really need to go back to the first error,
you can just click on the first error.

Here are mine using only 2 keys:

(define-key global-map [(f1)] 'compile)
(define-key global-map [(f2)] 'next-error)
(define-key global-map [(shift f2)] 'previous-error)

Well, actually, here are a few more, but I don't use
them very often:

(define-key global-map [(control f1)] 'kill-compilation)
(define-key global-map [(alt f1)] 'remote-compile)
