It is certainly very annoying to a typist who is used to one backspace
stroke removing one original keystroke. But not all typists are used to
this. If I e.g. type Japanese, then depending on the syllable, there are
one or more keystrokes for each Kana character, and because I'm entering
Kana and only my fingers type Romaji, removing one Kana per backspace
stroke isn't necessarily less natural than a more straightforward
