Shrug. That would be why it is optional, then.

Indeed. That is pretty much what select-active-regions was introduced to
address though? - so one can e.g. use M-w for CLIPBOARD yet have PRIMARY
set by user-selection (i.e. establishment of a nonzer-sized active
region) like other apps.

Who's talking about using it by default at this point? If a user
actually turns select-active-regions on though, it should work. It could
easily enough be recast as a global minor mode I guess. But it's just a
boolean setting in-tree at the moment.
