What's the difference with moving the ctrl key to the caps lock key on a
standard keyboard?

It's not a big difference... just preference - less far to stretch the fingers. Capslock always used to be the location of the ctrl key on early keyboards which happened to suit those that use the wordstar keybindings (which are the most efficient in professional writers opinion... and mine). A lot of emacs users like them swapped for emacs bindings. Although i've got used to using the right ctrl key for wordstar mode.
