More important: C-x C-j is reserved for Emacs internal use if I
understand it correctly.

See (info "(elisp) Key Binding Conventions"). I might be wrong since
that page does not mention C-x, but I think it should.

That C-x today happens to be a bad choice (because of CUA) is another
thing. I definitively does not get better if 3rd party libraries
starts using it too.
