Well, to be pedantic, OS X users will have Cmd+Backspace as muscle memory, which is such a different "shape" from Ctrl+Del (at least on my UK/IE keyboards) that muscle memory is possibly less of an issue. Certainly in my case, just having to use a different modifier key on OS X pretty much switches my brain over to using a whole different set of learned shortcuts, and the only time I ever get momentarily confused is when I'm running GIMP or Inkscape on OS X :)
