Daniel on Mediawiki.org says they use strikethrough a lot and would like a shortcut for it.

Sure. But what short-cut? Remember that it needs to:
- not clash with
- any existing VE shortcut,
- any expected VE shortcut for future uses (e.g. edit image/template/table), or
- any OS or browser shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+C for copy, Cmd+Q for quit);
- be available on most users' keyboards;
- be type-able; and
- ideally be the "standard" shortcut.
This doesn't leave many options. :-(
I added your comment to Mediawiki.org.
I think I noticed that the numbers 8 and 9 are still available?
Or at least this is what I read in the new keyboard shortcuts list.
(Which, BTW, is not available for me by its shortcut, since / is located on the numeric pad or above number 7, thus won't work).
Google Docs uses Cmd+Shift+X on OSX (as opposed to +5): https://support.google.com/docs/answer/179738?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
Happy to switch to this...
Unfortunately VE uses Cmd+Shift+X for "Change directionality"...
Re-confirmed in production. It's availabe in the formatting menu, and the indicated shortcut works as expected (Note: on macOS, you may have to use fn+shift+cmd+5 instead of shift+cmd+5 given the latter is by default used by the system's screengrab utility).
