I see.  But technically, it is (i.e. that's how Viper implements it).

Of course, Viper could be changed to use some other mechanism, but it is
convenient to use the region for that.  I'm not sure how/if we could let
Viper tell Emacs to ignore select-active-regions for this case.

I don't use Viper myself, so I'll let others handle this part.
