Mostly because they need to be set in a different place (e.g. image menu)
then where they are used (e.g. layers dialog) and the shortcuts are not
being shown (Which is bad because I often change them depending on my
needs). That is what I meant by "penalizing".

A minor point is that I need to organize my already-crowded keybindings
better because they are global, whereas before I ctrl-d could mean
duplicate image or layer, depending on the context (I am used to
focus-follows-mouse so this didn't bug me the least, but apperently it did
bug many others, so the change improve dusability for the masses or so :).
I call this "minor" because it's just that: a minor nuisance, and I guess
very difficult to make switchable via a preferences item.

And of course very minor is that I need to enable it, but that's sth. I don't
need to do very often :->
