There is still some confusion in it. But it _is_ a confusing thing.
Some remarks:

1) (region-)gain and range mouse modes should be seperated.
f.i. you can't do anything with gain or automation points in range mode.

2)Any bindings for the gain-points are also valid for the automation points.
Except that automation points are editable in object mode and the region-gain 
points in only in gain-mode. 

3)[select] is not a key. What is meant is that [a] alligns the current 

4)[meta] and [shift][meta] are general time and level (or x and y) constrain 
modifiers. So they operate (or they should operate) on any draggable thing 
where it makes sense to have a constrained drag in that direction.

5)in zoom mode I forgot to mention that left-click will zoom in and 
middle-click will zoom out.

6)right click always gives the context menu. So that is not mode specific

7)the ctrl-meta should be ctrl-alt for start rubberband select.
If you just click in the canvas you can of course always start a rubberband 
select. This binding allows you to start a rubberband inside a region.

8)I just saw in the code: ctrl-shift on a marker will hide it. It is still 
there but hidden. 

that is it for now.
You should try all these out though before finalizing a cheatsheet like that.
And just play around, click on anything with any key/button combo and see what
