I am not an extremist but it seems that having two similar menu items
will be too confusing.  I think `cua-selection-mode' is closer to what
most users expect from this type of thing nowadays.

Most users expect MS word.  That's not what Emacs is.

transient-mark-mode is a popular and straight-forward feature that
highlights (heh!) Emacs' native command set, and I don't think we should
bury such things.

Is it not reasonable to assume that most new users expects and wants the behaviour that cua-selection-mode gives?

Can you explain what is lost if cua-selection-mode is used instead of transient-mark-mode?
