This is standard behavior in nearly every graphical E-Mail program and web
browser.  To change this would cause far more confusion than leaving it as is.

Additionally, there shouldn't be a case where you would want to reload a message
(it shouldn't change) or reply to a web page, so Control-R doesn't need to have
the same function in both cases.
