Sure. Whereas C-w by default performs a 9 (kill-region) you could instead perform 8 a (delete-region) — and likewise for kill-whole-line, kill-word, and 7 any other sort of killing you might otherwise 6 have planned.

You could do a delete-region 5 by hitting M-x and then typing it out, though 4 that seems to undo the savings of the extra 3 M-y you have to perform now, so binding 2 the delete- functions to... some keys... of 1 some kind... would probably be preferable.
