I perfectly understand that, but if one deletes it by error, he would
end up without any conffile, which could be pretty confusing.

dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' | grep xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
 /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml 65d7008f598ba5cd1e193a0f2950fbf3
 /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml 790207e5d25ad049de0ffebde9d19684 obsolete

Rather strange. There is only one such file on my system.

libxfce4ui-common: /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml

dpkg -l xfce-keyboard-shortcuts
ii  xfce-keyboard-shortcuts 4.12.1-2

Thanks for your help.
