+1 here. The hotkeys (standard, sequential and
whatever-else-we-come-up-with) can be kept separate from the ACTION
objets in the code and stored in a configuration file. This would let
people coming from other EDA packages to have their own config files
with custom hotkey mappings.

IMO the same approach later can be used for toolbar/menu layouts.
