Please note that the discussion was about cua-selection-mode, not cua-mode. 
They are different: cua-selection-mode does not change the meaning of 

What cua-selection-mode provides is the:
- transient-mark-mode
- delete-selection-mode
- S-ARROW_KEY extends the region 
(Probably some more, but this is the main functionality).

This behavior is the default nowadays on the desktop, including in
Gtk+/Gnome and KDE (also in XEmacs).

BTW, before the pretest for 22.1 you were trying transient-mark-mode in
order to enable it by default. What was the result of that experiment?
