Well changing a struct means some editing work on config.h in
this case. However, the difference is marginal:



That's all already if you don't plan to execute a sequence when
pressing a shortcut.

No, you don't need to change, if you define NFUNCS 5, you can
keep {zoom}, the compiler is smart enough that it NULL's the
rest of the struct.

The point is, that you don't need to implement a multiplexer
function for such a trivial thing (I haven't seen a multiplexer
which does 3 things in a sequence, but there were some which did
2 things). And the effort for maintaining multiplexer functions
is higher than touching config.h once and stick with it.

Also, this results in patches which are patches actually, and not
only such a sequence function.
