I often want to comment out text with mouse-secondary-overlay.

I meant if `mouse-secondary-overlay -> region' direction is not
supported, text with mouse-secondary-overlay cannot be commented out
until I select the text again as region.  I thought it is good to
avoid redundant operation if possible.

Probably I misunderstand two relationships.
 primary   -- region
 secondary -- mouse-secondary-overlay
