I do think it's a problem, but admittedly, the way keymaps are normally
setup there's no standard&easy way for the package to "do the right thing".

IOW it's a failure of the general infrastructure offered by Emacs to
define and modify keymaps.  I'd encourage anyone to try and come up with
a good solution to this problem (it'll probably require changing "all"
packages to use a new way to declare keymaps, but I think it's a price
worth paying).

Started a project "general-key"

designed to deliver just one key for all related commands in all modes.

This permits to change a key at a single place for all.

Still pre-alpha in many parts, but working as far as written.

The backside: it requires to link the keys of the modes at least once.
But still better than learning different keys/commands for common navigations like statement, block or expression.
