Playing around a bit more exposes more inconsistencies:

-using the viper command R (viper-overwrite) hi-lights to the end of
the line in a similar way as cw does to the end of the word but the
primary selection is not clobbered. This is inconsistent to the
behavior of cw (although better).

-pasting in the primary selection (using <middle mouse>) or the
clipboard using C-y after the viper command R pastes the selection in
front of the 'R selection' instead of replacing the first part of the
'R selection' (whereas the same action after cw replaces the first
part of the 'cw selection'). Here the behavior of R is worse than cw.
