I know, but the point is to avoid having to open the panel and look for the
key value panel. Some would say what I suggest is superfluous, but think
about not using shortcuts at all, you can actually work without most
shortcuts, but makes the workflow way slower. This might be a tiny
improvement, but still, an improvement.

Yep, it is useful, but not as quick and versatile as it should, so I think
what I suggest would be a nice complement.

 +1 there!
