On the other hand, the whole point of the HIG is to make applications
behave the same way and in this case use common shortcuts. So unless
there are very good reasons(*) to keep it, this should probably be
changed long-term.

(*) "This action is more common" probably isn't a valid reason, since
this doesn't take into account that maybe another not too bad shortcut
can be used for "Duplicate" instead, thus removing the need for HIG
non-compliance and users being forced to re-learn what this shortcut
means in the case of Nautilus.
