    I'm pretty confiden that there isn't a _better_ way already.

Would you please explain to me why not?
Before I agree that we need a new feature,
I want to make sure we have not overlooked an
existing good solution.  Please show the reasons
why (you believe) these 7 keymaps are the only way.

    E.g. for cua, I need to ensure that those 7 keymaps are in the front
    of minor-mode-map-alist after every command,

The first question is why you need 7 keymaps at all.  Why isn't one
enough?  Why can't one key binding for a given key sequence handle all
the various different circumstances, through conditionals in the code?
