Using a NamedKeyStroke in place of a standard keystroke makes no
difference whatsoever in what the keystroke (regardless of type)
functionally does. It does/will makes things easier remembering what
things do if you cant keep track of all your key commands and what they
do in complex sequences

For example in the case above, I could use "Ctrl Alt O" or I could use
"Change Owner" - they will still both do the same thing so I don't see
what you are getting at here in using them. I think the problem here is
something other than keystrokes
