I don't agree with you, this keybinding has been around for a loooong
time (was already there with GNOME 1.4) and it is the only <by default>
way to changing workspace with keyboard.. Do we really want to force
users to configure their desktop for changing workspace when using a
keyboard ?

Replacing a keybinding by another one is really giving the hammer to
users to be smashed :)
