As mentioned on the list, I would prefer this to stay being used for word-wise
navigation -- just like it is on pretty much any other platform (not counting in
OS X).
Is there any reason to deviate from this? I don't think so, especially because
this has really rare usage, and furthermore, the option key is not available on
all keyboards.

I don't think those should be mixed depending on context, anyway. Just leave
command-left|right as is in text views, and use different short cuts to go
back/forth in the history.
At least I can't remember having used keyboard navigation in web sites on
purpose this way even once (as navigating the web via keyboard just sucks). But
many times I did so erroneously, which can be quite annoying if you lose text
input on the way.
