I though we where moving away from special cases?  Anyway, empty selection do
matter.  Consider this case:

I select a lot of code in another application.
I go to Emacs and set mark, then paste the code with mouse-2 and then M-x
indent-region.

With your scheme, mouse-2 would fail to paste, which would be a nasty surprise.

Surely this is not good.  But which is a nastier surprise
for new users, your case or my case below:

    (1) S-C-n
    (2) C-@ C-n
it's very confusing that they behave differently as to
selection.

They are both equally bad. I think we should add a hook to redisplay that gets called whenever selection is non-zero. Then that hook can do the right thing.
