That sounds good.

Nobody argued for that.

About the pain associated with change: I started using Emacs for coding
C++. When years later I migrated to a new, lispy language, which mode I
derived from elisp-mode, guess what keybinding I copied from CC-Mode.

Changing long-established things that are deeply engraved in our muscle
memory is not easy, and on that aspect I can sympathize with the CC-Mode
maintainer.

I, personally, would accept your suggested change, adapt my config and
be done with it, but it is natural that others would react with
irritation.
