That does not deactivate a region when transient-mark-mode is used.
Is that really the case? Then I think it is a mistake. New users will
expect that arrow keys without shift will deactivate the region.

How about trying an Emacs with default settings and workflow before
making further suggestions?

Maybe that is a good suggestion, but I can not see how it is relevant to the statement I make here. Don't you think that new users will expect arrow keys without shift to deactivate the region?
