The question would then be what the default should be.  :-)

Anyway, my impression is that the vast majority of kvetching about
transient-mark-mode and/or delsel mode is purely about `C-x C-x'.  If
that command didn't activate the region, I think many people who find
transient-mark-mode problematic would no longer feel that way.
transient-mark-mode is quite useful (qv. `M-;'), and it's a shame that
something is simple as `C-x C-x' should make so many people switch it
off completely.

So my suggestion is this: Apply the patch that reverses (sort of) the
prefix in the `C-x C-x' in the pretest Emacs, and see what people feel
about it then.  If people absolutely loathe how `C-x C-x' then works, we
can revert the change, but at least we'll have one more data point.
