That should be perfectly fine as probably every remote had number keys
and they're certainly all going to be grouped together.  In my opinion
those are the _only_ keys that make sense for editing.  If it's really
a problem for people to remember those 6 functions, you could always
just display them on the osd with the press of the info button or
whatever.  The only key you really should make an effort to remember
is 2 (cut).  I've forgotten the others before but with a couple
seconds of fiddling around with the other numbers, I quickly
rediscovered what each did so it's never been any real issue here.
