Sorry, I was actually talking about option-page up/down.

This does move the insertion point, and it was the behavior for this I 
didn't see defined.

Yes, this is because I change it in the default key bindings, as I 
previosuly did with page up/down also.

I did this because _every_ Mac user I (personally) know thinks the 
default (with scrolling) is not only useless, but also frustrating.

But all Mac users I know (incl. myself) didn't start using Mac before 
OS X, and apparently many existing Mac users did like the “scroll 
only”, so I removed the default page up/down key bindings. But since I 
never heard anything for home/end, I kept these.

I have considered removing them though (I have my own key bindings 
anyway ;) ).
