I am a firm believer that if in doubt copy someone else unless you have a
really good reason to do otherwise.  Innovative solutions need to be
nearly twice as good to compensate for the difficulty caused
by inconsistancy.

It would be negligant of me not to point out that the HIG recommends
against using Alt keys for keyboard shortcuts (for portability reasons if
I recall correctly) but rules are not absolute.  However a better choice
of keybindings may be available.
You might not even need two keybindings depending on how the feature
behaves (if a paragraph is already folded then the keybinding would unfold

Hope that helps, thanks for making the effort.
