I'm OK with whatever name you want.

FWIW, the rationale for `until-move' is that it is consistent with its tag, and
the set of tags is consistent. Each tag describes when the current locus is

IOW, it is not about the overlay being persistent; it is about the
(un)highlighting of the current locus, whether and when that happens.

These are the descriptions I sent:

(number :tag "Highlight locus for specified time")
(const :tag  "Highlight locus until move"  until-move)
(const :tag  "Highlight locus until move or next command"  t)
(const :tag  "Do not highlight locus"  nil)
(const :tag  "Indicate locus using fringe arrow"  fringe-arrow))
