In that case the selection would be empty, one should not take ownership of
PRIMARY in that case.

So the C-f (or any other movement) would cause the selection of PRIMARY?
That would have to be performed in some kind of post-command-hook, which
is undesirable.

Transient-mark mode must know when the selection is non-empty. How does it do it? It is only when the selection becomes non-empty we have to take ownership of the PRIMARY selection. Once you own selection you don't have to re-own it again just because the selection changed. You would have to disown it if the selection became empty.
