Crop overlay shortcuts

When in crop overlay i am missing some extra features with shortcut keys:

 

I have for example a school with 900 pupils and are about to batch edit these. First off is to choose crop ratio to 4:5 which is easily done auto (it then centers everything within those boundaries), then when i go to develop module and are in crop overlay i want to use just keyboard shortcuts to quickly do everything until its finished. The problem is that Lightroom stops when hitting for example the left margin since it cant make crops outside the photo (which is fine of course). So when i start using the arrowkeys to the left (since the portrait is not centered along the eyes) i want to continue center the portrait but it can't do it cause of those limitations. My idea is that Lightroom should continue (could be an extra setting checkbox in crop overlay options) to then start making the overlay smaller to compensate for this from an origin  of top left until i am satisfied with trying to center the portrait. Instead i have switch to my mouse and use the corners of that overlay to adjust it until centered. 

 

This way i could do the crop's lightningfast. Using mouse in anything is 10 times slower than keyboard shortcuts as anyone knows. Hope i explained it well enough.
