I don't know what you are talking about.  Lisp applications can bind
the variable when they need that and not bind when they don't.  How
this is "all or nothing", I don't know.

Besides, the issue is to allow customization of write-region's
messages, for which everyone wants that to be done in Lisp.  What they
do when it is in Lisp is their business.
