Thanks Lex.

It is actually preferable that plugins do not have default keybindings.

I understand, I would remove the default keybindings. The problem is this
plugin doesnt have its own preference page in the Plugin Manager window.
Activating this plugin will mean the user has to go to Edit->Preference
(not the Plugin preferences)->Keybindings to set the keybindings for this
plugin which is a lot of clicks. What I would suggest is that plugin should
have its own preference page and a way to tell the user how to set the
keybindings and the recommended keys. One of the ways could be putting all
those things in plugin description. What do you think?
