That's a different issue.  I still think that they're baffled at it being
disabled by default, even if they might also think it doesn't work right.
I.e. it doesn't work right but it's better than nothing.

Agreed.  But the "expected behavior" for such users is that both
region-beginning and region-end are independent from point, so it's
a non-trivial change.
