The reason the left arrow shared the H key is because Ctrl-H is backspace. The down arrow shared the J key because Ctrl-J is newline. It makes sense to reverse make a mirror image (reverse) of these for K and L, so everything is together. Also, mnemonically speaking, Ctrl-K is Vertical Tab (think vertical tab in reverse, up arrow), and Ctrl-L is Form Feed (think next, right arrow).
