Yes it's wrong because it is rude to assume that people have to agree
with you if they tried hard enough.   It's amazing that this isn't
obvious and that's why it comes up again and again. Some people
listen, others don't.

It's a GUI - if you need a hotkey then it has failed to be graphical.
Simply - you have an undiscoverable feature - where's the visual
reminder?   Why not invent the hotkey-ui with no graphics at all? Then
your DE won't impinge on anything at all - you can have a totally
black screen and a piece of paper next to you with all the hotkeys. By
the way that's a joke. Again it's amazing that one has to explain.
