as a user it would be cool that customize keyboard would be simpler in the following aspects: search for a function, and display what keys do.

two suggestions which would make the access quicker:
first: have 3 instead of 2 columnfs for shortcut keys, instead of key + function have key + writer, key + libreoffice. the radio butteon "libreoffcie" "writer" could then go away. instead have 2 modify buttons, modify writer, modify libreoffice.

second: make the search for all commands work. currently typing "inden" does not retrieve style Text body indent, one needs to click on styles to find it. in version this is, linux.

Don't see much advantage to removing distinction between global vs module specific keyboard shortcut/accelerator assignments, for "scope" as controlled by the radio-button toggle: LibreOffice or <active LO module>.

Shortcuts assigned in one of the module modes, override any shortcut set in global. And when not assigned to global shortcut applies (if it is functional in the module).

And of course the Customize dialog controls settings for other UI elements, not just Keyboard shortcuts. So it needs some consistency (but I guess radiobuttons could become list box like the other tabs). 

But the UI layout might be improved, @Heiko any thoughts?

As to the second item, that is bug 140070

We have a meta ticket for the keyboard tab and in particular bug 115527 for the redesign. Your input on this ticket very much is welcome.
