I just wanted to mention that a similar behaviour can already be
obtained with the 'skeleton-pair' feature. If the transient-mark-mode
is active, typing a 'skeleton-pair' key surrounds the region with the
corresponding pair. So, it is indeed a good idea to provide a similar
behaviour for 'insert-parentheses'.

%---[ .emacs ]----------------------------------
(setq skeleton-pair t)
(global-set-key "(" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "[" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "{" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "<" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "`" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
...
%-----------------------------------------------
