Indeed, there are various levels of "separation".  It seems that CUA has
several features that can currently be used independently (although
their implementation still interact).  That's good.  It means that from
the user's point of view, they are independent, and should thus be
documented as such.

Even just a few starting hints would be good: how to enable each major
feature (e.g. the cursor stuff, the rectangle stuff, ...).
