(In GNU Emacs this memory is less important, because one always can [set a mark and] start an incremental search without having to leave the text area and go into a search window or form. So there is no interrupt. Similarly with search&replace. This working mode is more TeX like, which also mixes text and commands.)

That should have been select text between point and mark rather than go to mark. Swap point and mark is sufficient to act as go to mark. The DefaultKeyBinding.dict file I give as a useful example implements those commands as C-X Space (create mark), C-X C-X (swap point and mark) and C-X C-M (Select between point and mark). It also creates Opt-V to match the already existent C-V to go up/down a screenful and center the cursor plus some other items.
