I'm not sure if that'd work.  If one looks as man ascii you can see the
old ASCII table, left of the A to Z column is the characters you used to
send on old terminals if you pressed the same letter with the CTRL key.

e.g. CTRL C sent ASCII control character 3 (ETX),
     CTRL G sent ASCII character 7 (the bell),
     and so on...

However, I'm not sure whether cut and paste works by sending those
characters, or paying attention to the *keypresses* of the control key
and another key.

Understood. What I'd like is for the keyboard shortcuts to be the same
physical keys whether I'm in English, Dvorak, or Hebrew layout as I
use all three. How would I do that?
