Opinions... Context-sensitive shortcut keys?

So we already have context-sensitive menus for part/assembly/sketch/drawing.  What would be your opinion on context-sensitive shortcut keys? 

 

For example, I've created my own sorta context sensitive keys by mapping a macro to a shortcut.  Both functions are sorta conceptually the same... if a sketch is active,  it adds a coincident or collinear constraint.  If not, it checks to see if an assembly is active, in which case it adds a coincident mate.  I have corresponding macros for concentric and parallel mates. 

 

I've also found myself wishing I could map "Mirror feature" and "Mirror sketch" to the same shortcut, again just depending on whether or not a sketch is active.  Of course, I could always write another macro, but I think it would be nice to be able to do through the UI.

 

Too confusing?
