Are you wanting these to work in browse mode or insert mode or 
another mode (or all)?  I see Ctrl-V is conflicting w/ entering 
Visual Block mode when in insert mode but otherwise the overrides 
seem to be working for me in the various modes.  Is Ctrl-X 
definately not working if bound to 'cut'?

In general, I'd like to know whether vi users would prefer Ctrl-V
to paste by default or enter visual block mode, as it does in the
copy of vim I've been testing against.

Hmm, thanks for reporting that also!
