No, I am intentionally making the normally discouraged conduct.  As
the name `kill-region-offset-by-5-wrapper' implies this wrapper
function is the extension of the kill-region.  It is perfectly
legitimate the extender knowing exactly what it is extending and
knowing how the original is implemented.

Since I am trying to create an extension mechanism I am fully taking
advantage of http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs-paper.html#SEC18
