As a plugin maintainer, I would like to see from the JOSM core the
- reserve some shortcuts for plugins 'forever'. It is unfair to allow
plugins shortcuts and once users have their habits, force them to
change just because core is suddenly using it. Of course, it does not
solve conflicts between plugins but devs can manage that.
- allow the plugin to overwrite the core shortcut with a pop-up dialog
explaining the 'why' (and leaving the user to accept or refuse). This
is a way to keep long-term users with their habits and show to new
comers the shortcut issue e.g. with the documentation (after all, it
can be redefined manually later in the prefs).
