I support this proposal. Emacs doesn't have convention for the usage of 
mouse-[1-3]. It is good time to define a convention like C-x for global
binding prefix and C-c for major mode prefix.

I hope mouse-3 is reserved for context menus.  In addition a key is
needed for popping up a context menu under point. The key may be
useful for heavy users who don't want to use mice. In xtla, C-j is
used for popping up a context menu in read-only buffers.
