Too much mouse by FAR! Better keyboard shortcuts PLEASE

New to LrCC and trying to keyword 65K photos, but it’s exhausting ... 
a)  Why doesn’t the ‘escape’ key take you out of the keyword box? I have to physically click away the whole time. 
b)  Impossible to deselect pictures without having to scroll all the way to the bottom to find an empty area to click. Why not just Cmd-Shift-A  for 'Deselect All’, like in virtually every other app?
c)  Why no Autofill? It works in Classic but not in CC. I’m ending up with hundreds of similar or misspelt keywords to go through. Adobe seems to claim Autofill as a feature but it's not happening on my computer. 
d)  Better keyboard shortcuts please (and customisable ones).

For item c), please have a look here, this is an issue I'm trying to resolve myself too:

As for the rest, I think you're right, but LR CC is being continuously developed, we can only hope it does get better as time goes on.
[Edit] just checked on b), they've changed the shortcut for this in CC, it's Command A to Select All, and Command D to Select None (it's actually the same in Classic too, but also the Select All switches to Select None if you hold the Shift key).

Greetings,

Thank you for your enthusiasm for the Lightroom family of products. For your Ideas to gain more prominent notice and have maximum impact with the team, there are a few things you could do to help.

Ideas, or feature requests as some call them, work like this on the Feedback Forum:  Each individual Idea is single post anchoring a thread. All of the people who have a similar idea and relate their rational will be merged into a single master post that contains all the comments on a single topic.  This has a few advantages:

1. It gives Adobe a place to accumulate votes (by either creating a thread that is merged into the master thread or by hitting the [Me Too] button in the upper right corner. Adobe can see at a glance, search for, and rank the top features being requested without having to search for scattered posts. The engineering staff can read the user’s comments and divine the best ways to implement a given request.
2. By being a part of this master Idea thread, when an Idea comes to fruition and becomes an active feature in the software, Adobe updates this thread. Participants in the thread, those who’ve been merged in and those who have hit the [Me Too] button will be notified by email to updates and feature announcements related to the original request.

You can help us out by doing a few things to make your idea count. First, if you have an idea, search to see if idea is already posted as a formal Idea. If it is, hit the [Me Too] button and if you like add your individual comments to the thread. Second, if you don’t find the idea is already posted, create a new thread and post your idea for a new feature.  Please keep the Ideas as one idea per thread so that we can merge them with the correct master threads if necessary.  We don’t have a way to merge an Idea into multiple threads so if you make multiple feature requests in a single post, it is likely to get lost in the shuffle, lessening its impact,
