Unless I am mistaken this is simply a consequence of that fact that OS  
X has semi-Emacs like keybindings in most text fields (well Cocoa text  
fields). The same holds true for Terminal, Safari and other  
applications. I say semi because only some keybindings are supported,  
but it is relatively easy to add more keybindings. Do a google search  
for something like Emacs like keybindings in Cocoa.

The relevant files are called something like StandardKeyBinding.dict
