CUA mode: C-S-c as prefix does not work

Documentation of CUA mode in cua-base.el contains the following text:

;; If you really need to perform a command which starts with one of
;; the prefix keys even when the region is active, you have three options:
;; - press the prefix key twice very quickly (within 0.2 seconds),
;; - press the prefix key and the following key within 0.2 seconds, or
;; - use the SHIFT key with the prefix key, i.e. C-X or C-C

The last option does not seem to work (at least with the examples I
tried).  As an example,

 * start Emacs with `emacs -Q',

 * type `M-x tex-mode RET' and `M-x cua-mode RET',

 * insert a random word and mark it (e.g. with `C-a C-SPC C-e'), and

 * type `C-S-c {' which should translate to `C-c {' and insert braces
   around the word.

But in fact the binding is reported to be undefined.

By the way, it would probably be a good idea to move the documentation
which can be found in cua-base.el to the Emacs manual which already
contains a section about CUA mode.
