Some bindings are unused in the global map but are used in
various particular major modes and or minor modes.  This is why
M-n and M-p and M-o are not reserved for users: they are reserved
for the use of a major modes.
You can use them, of course, but at the risk of seeing them inoperant
in some cases (e.g. M-n and M-p are very often bound to something that
goes to the "previous/next input in history")
