Oh, I see.  However reversing the default would let it be a little bit
more in line with transient-mark-mode now. That would make it easier
for those that want to move between cua-mode on/off. What do you
think? (There could still be an option of course.)

However there will still be no way change a "shift-style region
status" to a "set-mark-command style region status". Beeing able to do
that would be quite useful many times.

I suggest a small change in cua-set-mark for that. (cua-set-mark is
the cua version of set-mark-command.) As it is now cua-set-mark (ie
C-space) sets the mark to point if "shift-style region" is active. How
about instead converting the shift-style region to a "set-mark-command
style region"?
