As the one who pointed out that this "issue" is not limited to `region'
highlighting, since there are other kinds of selection highlighting in
Emacs, and so this "issue" is not limited to `region' highlighting, let me
repeat why I mentioned that:

There is NO issue/problem, even with the several such kinds of selection
highlighting, if you just drop the notion that selection highlighting
should not mask font-lock highlighting.

IOW, just drop trying to fix the non-bug, and there is no problem.  The
various selection highlightings (isearch, region, secondary-selection,
etc.) just need to work out any priority conflicts that might arise
among them.  And so far, there are no such conflicts, AFAIK.

It is only by introducing the desire to see font-lock highlighting along
with such selection highlighting that you create a nightmare scenario.

I am not opposed to generating colors.  I do it all the time.  I've
written a fair amount of code that does that in various ways.
