To me it would be more clear with something like:

"Most commands that act on the visibly selected region text, and on
the text near point otherwise, should use `use-region-p' instead.
That function checks the value of `use-empty-active-region' as well.

Note: In Emacs the region is visible if it is active and Transient
Mark mode is enabled. To make this work as in most other editing
environtments today you can use `cua-mode'."
