A couple of comments:

    -  could it please move to simple.el, since misc.el usually is not
       loaded per default.

    -  the  current version does set the mark (visible) even with
       transient-mark-mode on. So propose the following modification 

(defun mark-beginning-of-buffer ()
  "Set mark at the beginning of the buffer."
  (push-mark (point-min) nil t ))

(defun mark-end-of-buffer ()
  "Set mark at the end of the buffer."
  (push-mark (point-max) nil t))

    -  now the Xemacs version is more sophisticated (takes into account
       the size of buffer. But may be this ancient code, when (X)emacs
       could deal well with large buffers. I will ask on xemacs beta.
