that's a pretty weak argumentation. with move merging this adds one
additional keypress, which is absolutely irrelevant given that edit
action merging is not performed (that should be added and done based on
timing, too, imho). moving to the old place otoh can be a _significant_
amount of keypresses.
for me, moving around _is_ an editing action. i have a weak short-term
memory, so being able to jump back (and forth, fwiw - where is "redo"?
:) to recatch the context after some distraction is very valuable.
