The key press part is trivial - once you have the functionality in place.  But

You asked the author of the IntelliJ plugin why he would do that and not

The same can be asked to you, since you decided to extend SublimeText while a
lot of groundwork was already there for emacs (which is a far more widespread
editor, and more importantly a free one).
