Perhaps I wasn't clear. I'm saying that there is no set of key bindings
which will work on all hardware. Therefore we need more than one set of
default layouts.

It's not quite that simple, because some users have easy access to
numeric keypads and some don't, as the original post mentioned. But
whatever defaults are suggested, the user should be allowed to override
on start up. Users do need guidance, however, as some will be using not
just Orca but Linux for the first time.
