Sorry. Was not my intention.

Yes, it does for me. I often have two almost identical buffers open,
and switch from one to the other. But I want one of them to be
read-only, and the visual clue is helpful (not to prevent trying to
write into the read-only one, but to speed switching among them). I
have in fact this in my .emacs:

(setq cua-normal-cursor-color    '(box . "white")
      cua-overwrite-cursor-color '(hollow . "red")
      cua-read-only-cursor-color '(hollow . "yellow"))
