No, thanks

Okay, CUA-* looks pretty fancy and complex though: different region
highlight color, new keybindings…  Why can’t that be done with normal,
simple rectangle-mode?

Also I’m not sure but it seems to behaves strangely with undo history
(sometimes only some lines are reverted instead of all, etc.).

No it doesn’t: it copy invented blank characters as well (and there’s no
way to go at the same column as the last of the longest line of the
region).  However at some point, using some combinations of actions or
of the specified new (8!?) proposed temp keybindings, I succeeded in
having a line ends different for each line of the rectangle (at least it
was hightlighted to suggest so).
