I hope that this is sufficiently closely related to belong in this
thread: I find it surprising that org-do-demote deactivates the
region. Let's say I start out with

* 1
** 11
* 111
* 112
* 2

and I wish to move to make 111 and 112 be children of 11

The way that seems natural to me is to select headings 111 and 112, and
apply org-demote-subtree twice in succession. So with point at the
beginning of the 111 line,

C-space down down M-right M-right

However, this leads me to

* 1
** 11
** 111
** 112
** 2

because after one application of org-demote-subtree, the region becomes
deactivated and the second demotion applies to heading 2, which is
unlikely to have been intended.
