"GUI-happy" users are mostly surprised of its stickiness: they tend
to expect that it is just active when you mark regions with a mouse,
or use a special marking sequence.

We are getting closer with temporary transient-mark-mode on
mouse-drag, but I don't think we are "there" yet with regard to
"expected" behavior.
