Here is what emacs.info has to say on the matter:
As a user, you can redefine any key; but it is usually best to stick
to key sequences that consist of `C-c' followed by a letter (upper or
lower case). These keys are "reserved for users," so they won't
conflict with any properly designed Emacs extension. The function keys
<F5> through <F9> are also reserved for users. If you redefine some
other key, your definition may be overridden by certain extensions or
major modes which redefine the same key.
for years I had f1 bound to M-x vm, but don't use that now. Is F1
normally bound to something by Emacs?
