Default req: unify/simplify Basic editing Shortcuts

We need a solution here, this is bad for everyone.

Glue - should glue AI, Item, even notes
Mute - should work in AI, Item, midi notes, maybe track
Copy Clone - should work AI, Item
Duplicate: should work in AI, Item, midi notes, track

And there are probably much more: nudge, rename, etc ...

Yes, many if not all actions working on items should work on AI as well. If that will break existing scripts or least expectations than all of them should be duplicated. IMHO the default keyboard shortcuts should then be changed to use the new actions.

An analogy of how Winword would be if it was like reaper:

to copy regular text - CMD + C
to copy bolded text CMD + shift + C
to copy italic not bolded: CMD + Shift + I
to copy italic bolded: CMD + SHIFT + ALT + I

Now we need to paste:

to paste regular text - CMD + V
to paste bolded text CMD + Shift + ALT + V
to paste italic not bolded: CMD + Shift + CTRL + V
to paste italic bolded: CMD + SHIFT + CTRL + ALT + V

Wait, but if text is mixed with bold and regular and italic.
Solution: Select one by one each distinct set of characters and apply the shortcuts mentioned above!

This one needs SWS, but the guy who coded it left a few years ago and now it's pretty buggy.
