If C-c C-z already returns to the most recent R-buffer,
I think a 'z' (or 'Z') should insert a "z" (or "Z") in that buffer, as
it usually does.
A single letter in these ("writing" modes, as opposed to "non-writing"
modes such as 'dired')
should always map to self-insert-command, IMO.
Apart from that I like your proposal quite a bit !
