Maybe it would, but the entire Org-mode documentation is based
on keys rather than function names.  I find that the long function
names make Emacs documentation in written form less readable
for users who do not want to deal with Lisp themselves.  Org's manual
is similar in this to the Emacs manual, and if you compare this
way o writing for example with the planner manual, it does read
a lot better for my taste.

So, OK, I will make another remark that this key binding is user
chosen, but I will keep it in the manual like this.
