This bug is still an issue, because it is a general convention for key binding in GNU/Emacs. See <URL:> for details:
"Don't define C-c letter as a key in Lisp programs. Sequences consisting of C-c and a letter (either upper or lower case) are reserved for users; they are the only sequences reserved for users, so do not block them."

Maybe it is a good idea to change all key bindings for character entities to C-cC-c. This key binding is similar the old C-c, so users won't have to change much in their habits. Please check the attached patch.
