Like I said, I don't see anything wrong with "inclusive" and
"exclusive".  But if you want a good place to add such a blurb, do
that in the preamble in the node "Text", which already tries to say
something along these lines.  By contrast, "The Region" is only about
the region between mark and point, which is not entirely relevant to
the functions that accept BEG and END as arguments, because these
arguments don't have to come from the region limits.

Btw, this rule applies to string positions as well, I think.
