I see that you consider this a regression.  But the change you refer
to was in Emacs 22.1, released 9 years ago, so we've lived with this
long enough to consider your proposal a new feature.  I also think
that your proposed change goes farther than just restoring that old
behavior, because outline and its derivatives are not the only modes
that use invisible text.
