Right. So why the other binding?

comment-dwin != comment-region

Pretending that every mode conforms to the same rules is
counterproductive, because there are vast differences among them.

We also have different bindings for similar things in similar modes.

In principle, fixing those would be beneficial. OTOH, forcing existing
users to adapt just for the cause of coherence with modes they don't use
is not desirable either.

We shall strive for pragmatism, not for bureaucracy.

Sure, but I don't understand your negative reaction in this case.

I think I already explained the issue, but I'll put it this way: what
you would do about C-c C-c on C-Mode and how that would help their
users?


Oscar changes and sooner or latter they will arrive the uniformity is
good for the users and for the developers. It can simplify code and
documentation, reduce learning curve, improve external packages avoiding
potential colapses with specific modes behaviors... and the only thin
is that some users get annoyed on the beginning, but doing it well the
advantage (short, medium and long term) is more than evident.
