I agree with Mr. Heffner.  I've not tried CUA mode, so I can
only imagine that a user wouldn't be able to copy and paste a
rectangle without reverting to native keybindings.

When I started using Emacs for the first time (v20.7), I took
the manual's advice and avoided large scale key re-binding.  I'm
glad I did.

However, as newbies gain experience and do more things with Emacs, they
find that CUA only covers the basics, and they will have to learn the
way" anyway, in order to progress in proficiency.
