AFAIU the issue here is that you're using C-x C-x as navigation (a habit
you might have gotten from the time when transient-mark-mode was
disabled) rather than as a way to activate the region.

So I think this is a not a problem with d-s-m but with C-x C-x.

Also, I think it's a problem that comes from your habits, and if d-s-m
had always been enabled you'd simply have different habits and wouldn't
suffer from it.

So I'm not sure it's an argument against d-s-m, really.
