I must concur with Jim Lynch.

X defines mechanism, not policy.

To bind CTRL-SHIFT-F1 to something in your window manager, see your window
manager documentation.

To bind CTRL-SHIFT-F1 to something in xterm, try the following in your

*VT100.Translations: #override ~Meta <Key>BackSpace: string("\177")\n\
                               <Key>Delete: string("\033[3~")\n\
                               Ctrl Shift <Key>F1: string("we're off to see the gizzard")\n

Remember to restart X after making this change.
