Hi Eeva,

The Emacs manual suggests a specific convention for per-user bindings:

     As a user, you can redefine any key, but it is usually best to stick
  to key sequences that consist of `C-c' followed by a letter (upper or
  lower case).  These keys are "reserved for users," so they won't
  conflict with any properly designed Emacs extension.  The function keys
  <F5> through <F9> are also reserved for users.  If you redefine some
  other key, your definition may be overridden by certain extensions or
  major modes which redefine the same key.
