True, the number of key presses might be equal or even a bit more.

Still with two levels it's easier to navigate though. For a file name without
capital letters I might not need to change levels at all. I'm really annoyed with the
current Archos firmware where I have to hit the rather small F-key way to often
during titling.

This's my opinion - yours might differ, that's why a user defined setup is
probably best.
