[OS X Emacs] shift-select support AND org-mode features?

I was able to get this working using by disabling cua mode and using
org-replace-disputed keys. Now I can change timestamps and still use
Unfortunately, this breaks the OSX behavior of option-shift-select, for
selecting whole words at a time. (This instead actives "set mark.")
As an editor, I'm cutting and pasting words and sentences all the time, and
option-select is an important part of my workflow since it allows me to
quickly highlight by word.
Is there a solution that will preserve my ability to use
option-shift-select? I thought maybe if I key-bound "change timestamp" to
CTRL-rightarrow, I could reserve shift for editing.
Anyone know if this is possible?
