nothing prevents You from doing it
there are lots of examples on how to add commands to the ISPCMDS table on the fly
and almost any IT professional I know uses such approach to add shortcuts according to his/her keyboard stomping style
see for example
On the system I'm using right now I have actually set up a personalized ISPF Configuration table to give me a personal command table - no it's not enabled by the powers that be... Right now it contains 39 commands. Some are existing ones, but can now be used without prefixing them with TSO, some are extensions, like my SDSF which accepts a command, i.e.
, others invoke programs to give me the text of SQL messages, the return codes of the z/OS XML parser, and another series give me immediate access to all my data sets in Edit or View, either to the directory or to a specified member.
SDSF SELECT PGM(ISFISP) NOCHECK NEWAPPL(ISF) PARM(&ZPARM) SCRNAME (SDSF)
No need for big menus...
