But the behavior will still be consistent.  And complaint about
inconsistency is how I read that bug report.  It even asks "which is
the right behavior?", implying that having it consistent either way
would be OK.

Can you tell more about this feature, and why it cares to be "more
equal" than the region?  (Sorry, I don't have time to read the source
or try it.)  Why is it important for easy-kill overlay to make region
highlighting invisible?

Which will start an "overlay priority arms race", something I loathe.
