Actually C-M-<DEL> is not dangerous.
C-M-backspace is the one that tends to kill the Xserver.
`function-key-map' does not map C-M-backspace to C-M-<DEL>.

As for removing the C-M-backspace binding, I'd tend to say that it's a bad
idea because I use this binding extensively (I reconfig'd my Xserver so
I could use it).
