No one is claiming that prefix-region can do something that
string-rectangle cannot do if you are careful enough.  I do claim that
prefix-region is much more convenient to use because you don't need to
adjust region endpoints to beginning of line.

prefix-region is also more easily discovered by someone trying to,
well, prefix a region...  Before discovering it I used to do things
like `C-u M-| sed 's/^/PREFIX/'.
