bug#15618: 24.3.50; Region face takes priority over any overlay faces inside?

I'm seeing inconsistent behavior with this.
There is an overlay inside the active region, it has a `face' property.
With default theme, the foreground and background attributes of that
face are never used, the values from `region' face are used.
But if I switch to another theme (e.g. M-x load-theme RET leuven), the
inner overlay becomes easily visible.
Backstory here: https://github.com/leoliu/easy-kill/issues/3
1. Install `easy-mark' from https://github.com/leoliu/easy-kill.git
2. Open a buffer with some Elisp, move point to where some text is, type
3. Some part of the buffer becomes selected with an active region. The
previous position of point is marked by the "origin" overlay, with face
that's inheriting from `error'. However, the colors don't come through.
Here's how it looks for me: http://imgur.com/a/2VZyZ
Here's how it looks for Leo:
This is also what I see (except for the exact colors) if I use one of
many other themes (such as leuven, adwaita, dichromacy).
Curiously, wheatgrass behaves the same as the default one in this
respect. And if I switch to wheatgrass and only then to leuven, then I
also see the same behavior there.
Which is the right behavior? Like I mentioned in the discussion there,
Displaying Faces seems to indicate that `region' face should prevail
at all times.
