Karl,
I agree with the sentiment you raise, but both the E/B and the F/C keys are "normally open", and it's a good way to reinforce independence of the fingers to have them 'loosely anchored' as my saxophone instructor used to tell me about the Low C key. He also advocated anchoring my LH pinky on the G# key which is normally closed and a hair-trigger away from disaster, it does help with the instantaneous 'finding' of the Bell Keys...
