I think this is (or should be) a FAQ somewhere, but the short story is
that the cua* devices are only kept around in the kernel for
historical and backward compatibility purposes.  The maintainer for
these devices asks that they not be used, and that the ttyS* devices
be used instead.  The maintainer also claims that the code for the
cua* devices is not being actively maintained.
