I am not sure how often C-x C-p (mark-page) is used but maybe it could be moved 
to C-x p which is free at the moment and would be similar to C-x h (mark-whole-

Then C-x C-p and C-x C-n could be used for next previous error if
set-goal-column is not so important to be on C-x C-n. But as someone pointed 
out a negative argument to next-error goes backward so maybe C-x C-n can be 
left untouched.
