Yes because `global-set-key' bindings can easily get stomped on to
your point. The caveat is that it is fine if you only use it for
virtually never used keys. For example I use `f9' because it is a
long-reach and no one every binds to it. Sounds like you are bindings
keys that do get used often, and you aren't OK with that and that is
exactly why you would use a minor mode.

Happy hacking.
