... But that means you would have to restore the position (e.g. by
scrolling back "manually") before hitting kill? in other systems, it
is conventional for the C-x/C-c cut/copy to do the kill of the
partially or totally scrolled-offscreen active region (not of a
different region, which is what happens without jump-back, unless I'm
still misunderstanding) - i.e. for this purpose, jump back is involved
so as to jump back to restore the point position so as to
insta-restore the original region just before kill.
