Most of the Keybinds in WoW and other MMORPGs use the most obvious letter as shortcut so it's easier to remember for people or to guess correctly on the spot if they dont want to or have time to look thru the list. C for 'C'haracter, B for 'Bags' etc. this tends to make many games have a lot of identical keybinds and not necessarily because of them copying another game, altho some may still have been copied from other games due to popularity of keybind or cuz its just easier to remember when something is needed and the letter is already taken from another better suited shortcut. if you compare, for example, WoW and Everquest, not every keybind is the same between the 2 games. such as (im going of old memory on this and may of changed since i played it 7 years ago) quest is Q in eq and L in wow, talking to your party is /g (group) in EQ and /p in wow. and many others... like i said been a while since i played so cant remember many.
TL;DR -- mainly just use common letters ez to remember when making the game, but possible some have been copied from other games
