Another question is why the face definition of `region' has
platform-specific colors for GTK and NS, but not for Windows.

I would actually turn the table and ask why the heck do we have
system-specific defaults for GTK and NS.  I thought Emacs was supposed
to behave the same on all platforms, except where it's impossible.

In this case, the behavior is "use the system default" ;-)

FWIW, I am also ambivalent about this feature.  The system selection
color can clash with the default Emacs foreground/background color,
unless those colors are also taken from the system (which AFAIK it is

Well, Emacs does not try to avoid that either.  On a non-gtk, but X Emacs do
emacs -Q -bg lightgoldenrod2

and then mark some text.  The region face will be invisible.
