Lightroom: Option/Alt-Shift-0 should go backwards through keyword sets

Just as Option/Alt-0 takes you to the next Keyword Set you have defined, adding Shift to the keyword sequence should send you to the *previous* Set.

The UI justification for this is that it is easy to accidentally hit 0 while holding down Option/Alt when adding keywords to a photo. This feature would let you "undo" that error without taking your hands of the keyboard.

Dorin, on my system Option-Shift-0 does the same thing as Option-0. That is, it also moves you forward through the list of Keyword Sets.

This is on a Mac, LR 4.3.

Perhaps there is a bug in the implementation that causes it to miss the held Shift key?

EDIT: To help see the issue, it may help to rename several of your Keyword Sets to have a leading number, so you can tell whether you're going forward or backward.

It's 2015 now, and Lightroom 6.2 still does this on OS X.
