We generated a pretty good number of reasons:

* ⌃X and ⌃Z were totally arbitrary
* It was wasteful to lose two of the coveted control
   based shortcuts to these functions
* The new trigger is a better mental fit
* We only use one trigger now for these related operations
* ⌃> pairs nicely with ⌃<

Note that we made other changes to the commands:

* Moved them to the Ruby bundle, since they are a feature
   of a Ruby standard library and not Rails specifc
* Widened their scope to text.html, so you can use them
   in more places

Hope that explains our thinking a little.
