I see that `mark-inactive' and user-error in `kill-region'
have different messages:

`mark-inactive' signaled in the function `mark'
has the message only about the mark:

  "The mark is not active now"

whereas the user-error message in `kill-region'
is specific about the region:

  "The mark is not set now, so there is no region"

and I don't see how to merge these messages.
