iOS inspired Numbers 3 seems to be the way we are heading. I do not know how to assign a keyboard shortcut to a menu command that doesn't already have one (or even how to change one in Numbers 3). Maybe you could post a new question.

Hi Ian & wideEyedPupil,
I don't know about assigning a keyboard shortcut where already one exists (because it might create a conflict) but it is not hard to assign a keyboard shortcut to just about any menu item in any Mac app that doesn't already have one assigned.
Fire up Automator, create a new Service, drag a Run AppleScript action into the right pane (set it to receives 'no input', paste a "GUI" script into the action, and save the service in your Library > Services folder. Then assign a keyboard shortcut to the newly created service in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts.
The script that would go in the service for Autofill Down (replacing all the default code that Automator suggests) would be this:
my do_submenu("Numbers", "Table", "Autofill Cells", "Autofill Down")
on do_submenu(app_name, menu_name, menu_item, submenu_item)
tell application app_name
tell application "System Events"
tell process app_name
tell menu bar 1
tell menu bar item menu_name
tell menu menu_name
tell menu item menu_item
tell menu menu_item
click menu item submenu_item
on error error_message
Easier way to assign a shortcut is Apple Menu> System Prefs… choose the Keyboard Tab and then the Shortcuts Panel then from the left hand list chhose bottom item App Shortcuts. The it's just a matter of typing in the menu item, in this case "Autofill Down" and assign a shortcut Key combo.
THe shortcut will now appear in the Menu like a standard Application shortcut.
You can use either ellipse or three 'periods' for "…" and the only time I've had trouble is when a developer is ignorant of shortcuts on OS X enough to have submenus with the same Menu Item names in two different menus (eg> Edit> Fill> Down and Transform> Move> Down in which case it just grabs the first one I think from memory (or the one you don't want according to Murphy's law). In which case the script above would be essential.
