Should we care only for situation of selecting and yanking with the mouse?
In this case we could check last-command-event for mouse keys.

I don't think that's enough.  The selection may have been unchanged by the last command.

For example, with a single window in the frame, and using cua-selection-mode, select one word with the mouse, then select another word, then type "C-x o" (there's only one window, so this does nothing) then hit "C-y".  The selected word isn't edited.  Try the same but omit the "C-x o" step and the selected word is replaced by the previously selected word.
