Except for the default on the visible part, there's actually little
difference between the two methods.  i-search seems to work in cua-mode,
as well.  The only difference is, really, that you either hold shift all
the way through, or hit a key once.  I feel the second method is more
comfortable for a touch-typist, but I don't think CUA users are missing
anything here.
