Slightly more seriously, a few extra keystrokes can -really- improve
clarity. For example, you can write English and still be understood
(reasonably) well without most of the vowels. But how on Earth do you
interpret "ld mn gd t shp"? Or any Perl/Ruby/whatever golf entry?

I'd rather waste keystrokes writing clearer code than brain cycles
understanding obfuscated code, personally.
