I'm pretty much decided its not a bit enough annoyance to do much else
about.

I hated the default `on' regional highlight when they first changed
it. You used to have to activate it on purpose.  But secretly it was
growing on me I guess, because recently turning it off, and I missed
it right away.
I don't really purposely use it... its just a visual reminder of what
you have in the region... handy lots of times just knowing that.
