Well, yes, you can't cut without selection, but I've never heard
"select" used to mean "cut".  A selection is just a region of a
window, which can be deleted, cut, copied (with or without
translation) or replaced as a single unit.

+1 for "select" rather than "highlight", and for "insert" as opposed
to "lightins".
