Yes it would be nice to get feedback from calc users, especially ones who do
set these shortcuts, as some were when i look at the OOo stats.

Yes these would act no different than the Insert > Row, etc.

Yes that sounds like a first good step of just doing the insert ones.

Yes i believe the toolbar buttons will definitely help users avoid going to the
menu, but heavy spreadsheet users are heavily into shortcuts and it would be
good to assign an appropriate shortcut for these insert operations, rather than
them doing shortcut combinations.
