Setting the third arg to nil in the call to push-mark in
push-mark-command in simple.el can maybe give you a taste of it.
Maybe customisation could be introduced there.

I know from trying that that I dislike it though, maybe simply because
I'm accustomed to having the nice instant visual feedback of the
highlighted region rather than having to remember where the mark is
and imagine it.

I use C-SPC and cursor keys and C-SPC and C-s blah RET a lot (yes I
know that C-s RET can push a mark anyway, but then you need to C-x C-x
(C-x C-x...) _after_ the search and don't get the nice highlighting of
the region during the search, ho hum).
