So the menu looks like

Move here      Shift
Copy here      Ctrl
Link here      Ctrl+Shift
Cancel         Esc

Maybe it's nitpicking, but pressing shift alone won't move anything ;-)
When do I actually have to press shift ? When pressing or when releasing ? (I 
never tried it, the drop menu is so obvious ;-)

I'm not sure, but shouldn't have your last sentence be put into something like 
<ironic> tags ? 

I'd say it works very obvious as it is now and making this configurable would 
be overkill.
