Don't know what OS you run, but FYI Alt-Enter doesn't seem to do
anything on Windows in both Firefox and Chrome.
>From the user point of view, your suggestion for executing and
appending new cell in one shortcut, looks interesting to me

While here, I don't want to steal your topic, but as I opened it
because you mentioned modifiers, I noticed strange behavior and I'm
not sure if it's the way it should be: CUI clipboard commands, which
are handy in Notebook environment, behave like this on my PC:

 - Ctrl-Ins (Copy) - copies selection to clipboard (as expected)
 - Shift-Del (Cut) - deletes selection (can be easily mistaken that
contents is cut to clipboard)
 - Shift-Ins (Paste) - doesn't paste but triggers Insert

so it looks like some changes to Shift modifier has something to do
with this unfortunate behavior.
