I appreciate mouse-drag-and-drop-region when I move a sentence because
the sentence never disappears from screen.  Based on this criteria,
mouse-drag-and-drop-region inserts first and delete second.
Practically it is quick, thus order does not matter much.

There are two cases for dragging a sentence, that are ones with (1)
deleting the original selection and (2) keeping it.  Since to insert
is common for two cases, deletion of the original selection comes
later.  If it works, order does not matter much.
