Why would it make sense to do such a thing?  Windows does not have any
"primary selection", it has only the clipboard.  Windows users do not
expect anything but the clipboard to work between applications.

Would reverting the defaults of all those variables except
x-select-enable-clipboard revert to the old behavior on Windows?
