Me again:

It isn't just lefties, Iain. These are my edit keystrokes, too,
and I'm a righty. They were the original DOS shortcuts, the others
came from the Mac world. However, these shortcuts are less frequently
implemented than are the CTRL combos. Witness FrameMaker, which
does not support these shortcuts at all, but does implement the
CTRL combos.
