C-A is recognised as C-a on my system, i.e., Ctrl doesn't allow uppercase keys,
same for Meta (i.e., Alt).

If you want to have several "axiom-mode-specific" keybindings, then the usual
prefix is C-c, I think.  But if we only have a very few, I'd suggest to have
simpler keybindings.

As far as I know there is only one emacs command that does copy only, namely

copy-region-as-kill-nomark is an interactive compiled Lisp function in
`pc-select'.  (copy-region-as-kill-nomark BEG END)

Save the region as if killed; but don't kill it; deactivate mark.  If
`interprogram-cut-function' is non-nil, also save the text for a window system
cut and paste.

Deactivating mark is to avoid confusion with delete-selection-mode and

but since M-w is remains useful, I wouldn't redefine it.
