The mark-* keybindings are all over the place and they are hardly consistent (e.g. check out the bindings for sexp, defun and paragraph), but I guess in the case of mark-page the "p" in C-x C-p does carry some meaning. It would have been nice if all of those used some consistent prefix (e.g. how easy-kill does things), but I think this ship has sailed, as a lot of people are quite used to the current keybindings.

Yes, like I said I am disabling C-x C-p in my configuration.

C-c p and C-c C-p are nice suggestions, though, thanks. I was using them with 
Projectile before, but I have to say nowadays I try to stick with the default 
key bindings as much as possible in order to better understand what is going 
before re-binding built-in functionalities to different keys.

Anyway, if there are historical reasons for C-x C-p I understand completely and 
I can work around my problem in my init.el.
