Please don't!  Maybe I'm one of the few who _does_ use M-g d regularly
(and occasionally M-g M-g).

I keep a log of my hacking activities (tends to be in fundamental-mode
most of the time ;-), and I frequently copy text from an Elisp buffer to
my log.  Irritatingly, the font-locking gets copied along with it, so I'm
grateful for M-g d.

However, I too think that goto-line should have a binding, and M-g is a
good binding for it.  How about moving `facemenu-keymap' to C-M-g?  C-M-g
is currently unused, I think.
