As Lennart said before the little things add up. The more unfamiliar 
things the new user encounters the more time and effort he needs to 
invest to try emacs and it can be a turn off.

There is no reason to use the word yank for an operation which practically
every other system calls paste. It's one of those totally unnecessary 
roadblocks for newbies in emacs.
