6 Degree-of-Freedom keyboard controls?

I'm working on a retro PETSCII game inspired by Descent.

Here's what I'm thinking:

MOVEMENT

ESDF = move forward-left-back-right

A = move down (similar to crouch key?)
Space = move up (similar to jump key?)

ROTATION

IJKL = aim up-left-down-right
U = roll left
P = roll right

Does this make sense to people? Is there something better? I find the MOVEMENT keys inelegant, but I think they might be closer to what people are used to from FPS games.
