It sounds like you want some of the benefits of CUA-mode without the
C-c C-x C-v cut/copy/paste (at least sometimes).  If you can live
without them completely, there is a way within the newest versions of
CUA-mode to turn those keys off completely (I think; I don't use the
package, I just remember reading about it) or you can use my cua-lite

  ;;  cua-lite is a CUA emulator package for Emacs.  There are three

  ;;  2) it is easily extensible
  ;;  3) it does NOT attempt to override the existing use of <Ctrl><X>
  ;;     and <Ctrl><C> (use CUA-mode for that)
