Shortcuts can be used just fine.

I'm just saying that it would be useful to standardize on actions as
being the central way of telling an app to "do something" - whether the
source of the command is a keyboard shortcut, a gesture, an extra mouse
button, etc.

I mean, it sounds prettier to show

  Button          Action
    6             zoom in
    7             copy
    8             select all


  Button          Action
    6             Ctrl-+
    7             Ctrl-C
    8             Ctrl-A

(Man, the following would be neat)

  Gesture          Action
   <squiggle1>     zoom in
   <squiggle2>     copy
