Ah, I remember now why C-d is still bound to `delete-char': it's because
when we introduced the delete-active-region feature we wanted to enable
it by default but we didn't want to alienate existing users, so C-d was
left as "don't delete active region" as part of that tradeoff.

The recommendation is still to prefer `delete-forward-char' (which is
indeed the default binding for the `delete' key).
