Killing the region is C-w.  Not really a mnemonic. Copying a region
is M-w. Only C-y has a mnemonic binding.

But users expect C-c/v/x anyway, so why force them to learn new keys
*and* new terminology. At least the terminology could follow the 
generally accepted names (copy/paste/cut) if CUA keys cannot be 
used by default.
