mouse-select and shift-select semantics are already unified to a large
extent.  Try it: drag a region of text with the mouse, then extend the
region with the shift-arrow keys.  Internally, both work by setting the
value of `transient-mark-mode' to `only'.

Do you have a specific suggestion for improvement?
