Yes. `transient-mark-mode' does it.

Consider a replacement for `C-x C-x' that does not activate
the region. And a command to only activate it (without
swapping point and mark), so you can still activate it on

Coupling swapping point and mark with activating the
region - as the only way to do the former - was probably
a mistake.

It's OK to provide a command that couples the two, for
convenience for those folks (most of us?) who want that.
But perhaps we should now consider having two different
commands (plus the convenience combo).
