I made these reference images to help me re-map my key bindings in BF3. The default is on the left. The red boxes are my changes. No red box means the default key binding is used. Please note this is WORK IN PROGRESS, but feel free to comment.
Thanks alot! Having big difficulties binding my keys due to the fact i use cursors for moving (as a left handed mouse user) and have to change most of the keys accordingly. These screens of yours are very useful.
As far as I know the 'Q' key is hardcoded to 'Commorose' so no matter which key you choose for Commorose the Q-key is always there for the same function. This means that binding another action to the Q-key will result in getting a Commorose while you want, for instance, to take a sprint ;)
How in the world did you ever come up with using E S D F for walking and why? Do a lot of people do this? It seems to be a good idea. More buttons on the left I guess. I am not good enough with my ring finger to do that.
Most people who play with the default W A S D keys use their middle finger for W S anyway, by shifting their left hands to the left by one key from the "home key" position of touch typing (A S D F). Switching to E S D F is easy for them because their middle finger still controls forward and backward (E D). Like you said, the left pinky has access to more keys, in fact, seven keys (TAB CTRL LSHIFT Q A Z 1) vs. three keys (TAB CTRL LSHIFT). I also don't have to look down at the keyboard to hit 1 2 3 4 5 because they are exactly the same as when I'm typing.
I'm not trying to push this idea on anyone. Just sharing a little secret that has helped me over the years. Everyone should use whatever key mappings that they are comfortable with.
