It takes a back seat in this case.  (And in general, consistency is a
very weak argument in this case, because each face is used in
different circumstances.)

Because, as explained previously, the fact that region extends is a
kind-of "retreat".  Doing that for many other faces would mean the
feature itself is useless, and probably should not have been coded in
the first place.  I don't think this is the case.
