Isn't it so that these keys are passed down to Emacs?  I used Emacs on W32,
and Ctrl-C was not captured.  Neither was Ctrl-X, Ctrl-Z, Tab, Esc.

We are not talking about keys which are commonly used for other things, but
keys which are captured on a higher level and never reaches Emacs at all.
This is the case for Alt-Tab for example.
