IMHO, the world is not a single suit of applications. Doesn't matter what HIG or HIK will say. if I hit <tab> twice on my terminal I am asked "Display all 3277 possibilities? (y or n)" -- that is, over 3000 applications. Of course no keybind will behave consistently among all of them. Even if only about 1/4 of them are intended for interactive use.
I pressed "CTRL + L" around my desktop - on the already open apps - just to see what happened, if any "open location" window would pop up. Just for fun, of course. Ok, it downloads e-mails, and clears the terminal screen, (and, yes, opens the Layers Dialog). But no "open location". On the other hand, ctrl + L to open the layers dialog is extensively documented, as Simon puts it. I f the GIMP would be a Gnome-core application, I'd say it would be worth the effort. Actually, if it is for "ease of use" at all, in a parallell popular suite of Free Software Applications, openning a "location", doesn't have a different interface of openning a file. One just writes the desired URI were he can also type the filename. Now...if someone will ask me what I find easier: having an "open " menu entry were I can click on folders and files, or type a filename or URL, _or_ having two "open" options on the menus, one were I cannot write a filename, but if I press a key combination which what happens to be the shortcut for the other "open" option I would not think much to answer this one.
