Yup.

Ah, yes, true.

Sure.

I've spelled out all the cases instead of using the
(xor arg (not (region-active-p))) logic for clarity.

It seems to do the trick in all the use cases (transient with active
mark, without active mark, with and without prefix, and non-transient
with and without prefix).  Unless there was some combination I forgot to
check.
